Maker culture is thriving in schools and public libraries across the United States and beyond. From challenges to success stories, no two makerspaces are alike, and maker facilitators have valuable lessons to share. In their recent edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School, CT; Ethan Heise, Director of MackinMaker; and Heather Lister, Professional Learning Specialist, had a discussion on their experiences with makerspaces and shared advice for those starting their maker education journey.
Michelle Luhtala explores school library makerspaces from floor plans, furnishings, and equipment to the role of play in a data-driven education landscape.
In this edWebinar, Diana Rendina, Media Specialist and Writer, Tampa Preparatory School in Tampa, FL; and Colleen Graves, Teacher Librarian, Ryan High School in Denton, TX, will describe step-by-step how to introduce challenge-based learning into your school library makerspace.
