Technology has advanced to the point where the general populace is now empowered to design and create our own goods. More than just putting together Ikea furniture, people are now building their own furniture at local tech shops, printing toys out on 3D printers, and connecting via the Internet to collaborate on music. The Internet has opened up a whole new world of creativity that was never available before, creating pockets of niche communities that are informative and proactive. The Maker Movement is powerful, and now more than ever, students have the opportunity to start early and contribute significantly to the world. This is the beginning of a new revolution and teachers are at the forefront.
