Great article! Even if it's a bit of Shameless self promotion ;-) Makerspaces don't have to be only 3D Printers & Green Screens!
What was left out of the interview was you can create a Makerspaces school!
• Have kids create, film, & produce a Cooking Show in the FACS room!
• Have kids design a personal LOGO then create cool pottery, fire it in the Art Room & paint it with their brand.

Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn.
Keep an eye out for this topic, more later! I'm really impressed also with the Makerspace that the Nashville Public Limitless Library was crowdsourcing and building back in Feb! I saw them on an ISTE Board of Directors trip and was blown away!!!!!
When going into any job interview, you are sure to be asked by the interviewer for your resume. Imagine giving him/her your iPad. Why? Your future employers have attention spans like you do so why ...
"With the Mac app, iBooks Author (and now Adobe InDesign CS5), one can create interactive textbooks from existing templates. What if you used that idea of interaction with media in a textbook to create an interactive resume!"
Art cannot be created or destroyed -- only remixed. In a convincing talk from TEDGlobal 2012, director Kirby Ferguson explores the challenges of originality and freshness in a world where creativity takes root in what has come before.
Google just revealed plans to shut down eight of its services as part of what it’s calling an ongoing spring cleaning effort. Some of them are pretty arcane, but among TechCrunch writers, anyway, we’re pretty bummed to see that Google Reader will be shut down on July 1.
