Linking Literature to Makerspaces - Resource Link

Linking Literature to Makerspaces - Resource Link | ELE TEACHER | Scoop.it
The library is a place of engagement, learning, discovery, belonging, community, creativity and innovation.

A makerspace is a place of engagement, learning, discovery, belonging, community, creativity and innovation.

In schools, the library is the only learning space not limited by curriculum; it is an open learning space, which can be interpreted in many ways, and I suggest that this is why so often makerspaces find their place there. Outside of schools, public libraries are increasingly one of the only ‘3rd places‘ where people can feel free to meet, collaborate and learn, without the pressure to spend (even coffee shops move you along if you linger without a coffee in front of you).  Not to mention that library staff are often the most open to new, exciting and innovative ways of interacting and engaging with learning and technology!

sometimes the curriculum that teacher follow cause impediments in teaching and learning.. if the curriculum is not flexible enough then how are you going to "roll you sleeve" is there are no resources in the classroom.
