4. What is a MakerSpace? Have you seen/experienced one? Share your experience here?

MakerSpace provides the gathering of tools, knowledge, mentors, information and expertise to complete a task, linking it to real life experiences, and how we use these tools in the makerspace.

Makerspaces allows for a lesson to be entertaining and a flow of creative thinking. A link to real life experiences and problems allows the students to see the relevance of your lesson, gaining their attention and full participation.

I cannot think of an experience where makerspace was played out in my time at school, but will be integrating this into my classroom and lessons as I believe it is an important aspect of learning.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
