Makerspace

20140116-101737.jpg

At our district Technology Coach meeting this morning, we are learning about (among other things) Makerspaces. What is a Makerspace? That is what I asked when I first heard the term. A Makerspace is an area where learners are given tools to create what ever they want. It is interesting that when I googled the term, the first result was the Makerspace at our very own Edmonton Public Library.

Wouldn’t it be cool to have a Makerspace in your school? Imagine the things that kids could create and explore.
