Ideas from Make ” 3 Key Qualities for a School Makerspace”

3 key qualities of school makerspaces

Here are a few quotes from this amazing article about School Makerspaces:

“Making requires two sets of skills and the confidence to try something new. The first is simply tool skills – knowing which tool to use and how to use it safely”

“The second set of skills can be thought of as diagnostic and problem-solving skills. These are the skills required to figure out why something won’t work, come up with a creative solution and to manage one’s emotions through the process. These skills probably can be taught, but they are typically learned through practice and coaching (a key skill for a teacher in a makerspace).”

“There is nothing more important in a makerspace then a dedicated teacher.”
