Innovative digital solutions to assess 21st century skills in makerspaces

Created with Sketch.

This output will involve the development of the digital assessment tool for the assessment of 21stC Skills based on the outcomes of IO1.

This tool is planned to equip teachers/educators in makerspaces with a more efficient way to check and validate the development of learners’ skills. This in turn is expected to impact the quality of the learning provided in makerspaces, since it will allow teachers and learners to reflect on the learning process and understand better learners’ needs and skills developed and finally revise/improve their learning activities accordingly.

Though it will be developed specifically to meet the needs of the makerspace context it is expected that there is potential for use in other nonformal and experiential educational contexts. As a digital tool, there is potential to easily gather usage data for later analysis and to input to potential future expansion or scaling of the tool.
