I first started learning about the Maker Movement in education and makerspaces in late 2013.  Since then, I’ve been using this page to compile and curate some of the best articles, videos, blogs, books and other resources that have helped me along the way.  My hope is that you will consider this a go-to resource as you progress along your own Maker journey.  No matter whether you’re just getting started with makerspaces or are looking to grow your program, there’s something here for you.
