Junto a sugestão de fazer tabelas que ajudem a sintetizar as leituras e facilitem recuperar as fontes de informação e o seu cruzamento.

7 Tips for Planning a Makerspace -- THE Journal | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
An increasing number of K-12 schools are transforming classrooms, libraries or other spaces into Informal workshop environments where students can tinker or invent, and with good reason. According to The NMC/CoSN Horizon Report: 2016 K-12 Edition, "Makerspaces are also increasing student exposure to STEM subjects and technical disciplines. Learners are applying maker skills to address some of the world's pressing challenges with innovative solutions."

But how do makerspaces get started? THE Journal spoke with several experts, who shared their insights into the makerspace planning phase — not just designing or equipping the space itself but preparing the students and staff so that they're able to make the best possible use of it.
