How are we supporting young digital makers?

Digital Makers cover (robots)

Over the last couple of months I’ve bee putting together a report on digital making across the UK. It examines the growing field of making creatively with technology, and explores the opportunities available for this across the UK.

It’s been an interesting process, causing me to look closely at just what children and young people are learning when they make with technology, and taking me back to my own school days tinkering with tape recorders and music technology. It’s also the first report of this size I’ve managed, researched (with the help of some great colleagues and external researchers) and written.

I’ve written some more in depth thoughts on the report on the Nesta blog (link below), and of course in the report which is available now.
