My Maker Space Background (by Shannon Descamps- guest hosting) @shannondescamps
Fast forward to this school year… While doing Genius Hour (20 Time) reading over the summer, I was intrigued by the idea of The Maker Movement. It seemed like the perfect outlet for my students to create. It took some time and some help & advice from other educators but we finally kicked off our Maker Space time. At this point we spend 45-60 minutes a week on it, but as the end of the year approaches, I'm sure more time will be devoted. During the chat, I look forward to sharing how my classroom is set up for this and I can't wait to hear ideas from others.
