This week we focus on learning through making, and reflect on the creative process through the Creative Learning Spiral. We also introduce coding as a new form of fluency and self-expression, and we start making projects with Scratch.
In this video, Mitch Resnick describes how people learn through making projects, and introduces the Creative Learning Spiral as a framework to reflect about the creative process.Subtitles are available in multiple languages.
