Teachers talk: 12 makerspace must-haves for back-to-school

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:40 am

Four experienced “makers” and K-12 educators dish their top tools and advice to build a meaningful classroom makerspace from the ground up. Makerspaces are becoming a classroom staple. As these shared spaces for student-led learning continue to flourish, the concepts, tools and applications of makerspaces have reached a new level of variety. For those new to “making,” developing the blueprints for a classroom makerspace this back-to-school season can be intimidating.  The teaching and learning benefits of maker education are clear and simple. This practice enables students to exercise creativity and abstract thinking to see a problem from beginning to end. They test, analyze and modify ideas in both the design and production stages. Making offers our youngest generation a fluid model for approaching problems through trial-and-error, a skill that can last a lifetime.
