This webinar had some good information. I am an art teacher and have been doing maker spaces for years...just never called them that.

Excited to implement this into my school year
This was a very helpful webinar. There were things that I needed to hear...Makerspaces are not connected to a grade. There is no right or wrong way to format the Makerspace. It is what works for me and is best for the students... what empowers them. I am ready for the fun!
I loved when Nikki said that makerspacers “empower students to fail”. I agree with her that failing is definitely a part of the learning process.
