Building Maker Spaces vs. Building a Maker Culture

In Nick Provenzano’s book, Your Starter Guide to Makerspaces, he makes the case that a maker space can start a movement inside your school. I agree wholeheartedly.

There are many folks who have been saying to “stop” using the word Makerspace, and it shouldn’t only be one space. But sometimes this space is the seed that plants a maker movement into a maker culture.

At Centennial School District (where I’m the Director of Tech and Innovation) we’ve been slowly beginning to build a maker culture out of maker spaces. It is a process and one that doesn’t happen overnight. Here is a few things/ideas we’ve done that have jumpstarted the movement towards a culture:

The Daring Librarian: Makerspace Starter Kit

The Daring Librarian: Makerspace Starter Kit | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
We have, however, recently expanded upon our Makerspace offerings thanks to being inspired by several of my librarian friends in our amazing #TLChat PLN! Kids can come in during lunch or when they've finished their work to explore, craft, and create in the Library Media Center.


I re-purposed 4 empty study carrels for this Makerspace center at the top corner of our library.  The grouping includes a Lego Creation Station, a Duct Tape Craft Cubby, and a Makey Makey Coding Corner."

The value of teaching kids to learn through the maker process. What happens when kids ask their own questions and seek their own answers?  A really good look at the scary wonder of the teacher hands off and giving students autonomy in their learning.
