Two Tables – A #Makered Parable
Slightly too long for twitter…
The first table is covered in electronic parts you can’t identify and tools that you’ve never used. There’s no instructions or guidance beyond a Post-It with a one sentence challenge.
This is not teaching.
The next table has an immaculate mis en place. A dozen different parts are taped to index cards, labeled with a name, picture and part number. There’s a small packet of illustrated instructions, calling out the part numbers and tools required for each small step.
This is not discovery.
Makered has to be somewhere in between.
