Tinkering Spaces: How Equity Means More Than Access | #Maker #MakerED #MakerSpace  | SchoolLibrariesTeacherLibrarians | Scoop.it
The Maker Movement has helped spur renewed interest in hands-on learning and the value of spaces where children can explore their own ideas, be creative, and tinker. Some schools have made makerspaces and FabLabs a priority, building making activities into the curriculum and encouraging kids through afterschool activities. In large part, this new excitement has come from a predominantly white, male sensibility and conversations about equity and tinkering tend to focus on questions of access to makerspaces and to tools.

We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.
