Making the Case for Makerspace

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Makerspaces are a popular buzzword in education. But why are they important and how do you get one off the ground? In this session we'll look at what a makerspace is, what impact they can have on teaching and learning, and where they fit in to the school space and curriculum. Suggestions will be provided for starting your own makerspace including must-have materials and projects.

In no particular order, I am a teacher, a librarian, a Hawkeye fan, a mom, a wife and an avid reader. I'm excited to connect and learn at ITEC!
