If you remember my post about writing and making after the National Writing Project, you’ll enjoy this article discussing “Why the School Library is the Perfect Place for Maker Education” on the Educator Innovator blog.
I’m still thinking about the thought process by my collaborative group session where teachers discussed the idea of revision as debugging and writing drafts as iterations. This combined with the cyclical nature of both writing, making, and inquiry are a great way to teach educators new ideas about incorporating making into their classes.
I was also interviewed for School Leaders Now blog about makerspaces for the free download “7 Ways Schools Will Change by 2020.” I stressed the importance of speaking with the community before making big purchases, and starting simple with the intent of expanding over time.
