MakerBridge | Maker Things | Scoop.it

MakerBridge is an online community for everyone interested in makerspaces and maker culture, including those working in makerspaces within libraries, community centers, and schools. This community is intended to build a bridge that brings people together so they can collaborate and learn from each other’s experiences. This network can be a valuable resource for anyone trying to plan or run a makerspace in a library, a school, or any other dedicated makerspace location--or even individuals who just enjoy tinkering and creating.

Makerspaces, Participatory Learning, and Libraries | The Unquiet Librarian

Makerspaces, Participatory Learning, and Libraries | The Unquiet Librarian | Maker Things | Scoop.it

The concept of libraries as makerspaces first hit my radar last November when I read about the Fayetteville Free Library’s FabLab. As I began hearing more buzz about libraries and makerspaces the first few months of this year, I decided that learning more about this concept and exploring how I might apply the elements of makerspaces to my library program would be a personal learning project for the summer.

 

So what is a makerspace? Makerspace defines it as:

 

'Modeled after hackerspaces, a makerspace is a place where young people have an opportunity to explore their own interests, learn to use tools and materials, and develop creative projects. It could be embedded inside an existing organization or standalone on its own. It could be a simple room in a building or an outbuilding that’s closer to a shed. The key is that it can adapt to a wide variety of uses and can be shaped by educational purposes as well as the students’ creative goals.'

 

The Library as Incubator Project describes makerspaces as:

 

'Makerspaces are collaborative learning environments where people come together to share materials and learn new skills… makerspaces are not necessarily born out of a specific set of materials or spaces, but rather a mindset of community partnership, collaboration, and creation.'

This is harder than it seems....takes not only a philosophical shift (which is the easiest part) and $$$

Where do our students get to make stuff? I really like this idea of makerspaces, trying to create one in my own school currently and it is a project that is injecting real passion into the teachers involved.
