What is a MakerSpace? Have you seen/experienced one? Share your experience.
Makerspaces come in all different shapes and sizes but they serve a purpose as a point of gathering the tools, knowledge and information and the expertise to complete a task. It is not only the knowledge that allows us to complete the task but the way we use these tools in the makerspace.
Makerspaces provide students with endless possibilities to have a rich fulfilling lesson in design technologies on top of learning how to use different tools. Through the introduction of makerspaces students can connect on a personal level by creating solutions for real life problems.
I have not yet experienced a makerspace but hope to in the future of my career in teaching.
