TCEA Makers Day Two –
After a deep dive into the many varied options under the maker space umbrella on Day 1, you’ll enter Day 2 with a better sense of the powerful skills that can develop from taking part in maker space learning.

This second day will focus on how you can achieve these advantages in your own school, classroom, or library. You’ll learn how you can begin to implement these ideas and how to start or expand your own makerspace. We’ll discuss critical topics including best practices, budgeting, how/when to assess students (and the program), connecting your makerspace to content standards, and getting administrative buy-in.

You’ll leave with an action plan that is tailored to your specific situation, even if you have limitations based on storage space, budget, or access to technology. This action plan will guide you in the next steps to making your makerspace a feasible and sustainable reality. You will also leave with relevant ideas and activities that you can implement right away.

Day 2 is all about making a plan.
