Useful all-in-one guide. Interesting in seeing the ads reflect a lot of the additional costs required or utilized to have a smooth running program. What I would really like to see someday is a guide to IT infrastructure cost - something that just lays it out there and says, "If you wanna do this, it'll cost around $50,000. If you wanna do that, oh, that'll cost about $150,000."

Defining Makerspaces: Part 1 - Renovated Learning

Defining Makerspaces: Part 1 - Renovated Learning | Flat Connections | Scoop.it
Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with criticism.  I was told (not to my face) by a visitor to our school that our library makerspace is not a “real makerspace”.  This same person stated that our woodshop is a “real makerspace” because it has power tools.  She even suggested that I “do some research” on what makerspaces actually are.

Feeling personally insulted aside, what bothers me most about this statement is the concept that some makerspaces are more valid than others and that a makerspace is solely defined by the tools it contains.  I do agree that our woodshop is a makerspace, even though we don’t call it that. Our woodshop is awesome, and I’m so glad that we have a space where students can learn how to use saws, drills and other tools to build awesome projects as part of their curriculum.  Yes, that is a makerspace.

But is my space any less of a makerspace simply because it doesn’t have power tools?  Because it doesn’t have a 3D printer?  Because my students build with LEGOs, K’nex and cardboard?

Via John Evans
Julie Lindsay's insight:

I do think the definition of 'makerspace' needs to be very liberal - including the use of digital technologies to create artefacts.

Schools should be more like farms, not factories

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Flat Connections | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

This seems like such a more humane way to see students and the educational process!

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 2015 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.
