Have you considered designing a makerspace- a creative, DIY center where students can gather to create, invent, and learn- in your classroom, but you're unsure how to get started? Would you like to know how best to structure learning within this makerspace, for a particular grade level or subject area? Have you tried to integrate a makerspace and would like to learn more about best practices? Educators will leave this course with the ability to plan and develop a low-cost makerspace to use with students for the design of creative projects to deepen understanding of content though hands-on, self-directed learning.
