“ What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school? Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects. Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room. Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well. Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.”

Seven Classroom Structures That Support Student Relationships

Seven Classroom Structures That Support Student Relationships | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

How do we go beyond rapport and establish good teacher-student relationships? How can teachers build relationships on empathy, trust, expectation, support, and understanding with students?

relationships facilitate great learning.

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, February 12, 2016 8:18 PM

Students appreciate and respond to structure. However, keep in mind that structure does not have to be rigid or stiff. There is plenty of room for fluidity, as with relationships. Bonds strengthen over time, and over shared experiences. If you can develop structure in your classroom, you will also develop strong positive relationships with your students.
