Laura Fleming has quite a bit of knowledge about makerspaces. She’s created them at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
A former classroom teacher, Fleming became a library media specialist at New Milford High School in New Jersey at the behest of her principal, Eric Sheninger, also a well-known education figure. A frequent blogger and makerspace advocate, Fleming also is author of the bestselling Worlds of Learning: Best Practices for Establishing a Makerspace for Your School.
Fleming spoke recently with EdTech Managing Editor Jena Passut about makerspaces and how she makes the best spaces for the kids in her school.
