Making off the Grid: Upcycling Learning
Gordie Wornoff, York University
Learning through Critical Making
In this video, educator Gordie Wornoff explores multiple dimensions of DIY production and critical making ‘in the wild’. Gordie models his theory and practice of critical making, and links critical making and learning to wider social-environmental and educational ecologies. Gordie unpacks terms like upcycling, salvaging, and modding, and examines how forms of ‘DIY microproduction’ (in and outside of schools) might be conceived as a pedagogical intervention, and seen as both aesthetic and emancipatory form of learning. Tools for conviviality – in action.
