Makerspaces 101

Last month, I was part of the Teach with Tech conference. I was asked to give a twenty minute overview on what makerspaces are and how teachers can get started with making. I wanted to share my video here for anyone who may be interested. In this video, I cover the basics of what a makerspace is, show off my makerspace, and give you some tips for starting your own makerspace. If you use this video along with the Edtech List, you’ll have a good idea of what’s in my makerspace, how I use it, and how you can get started with making in your classroom, too.

Enjoy!
