Here is a photo I took last winter of an amazing Lego Robotics Unit that our district offers to students from grade 1 to grade 8. My grade 7 class was completely enthralled and engaged with the learning that took place during these sessions. I feel that the Library provides a unique space for students from any class to come and take part in the creative learning that Maker Spaces can provide.
Looking back on all of the wonderful ideas we have discussed and learned about in the past 2 months I am excited.
I am currently working on a plan to implement a Maker Space into our school library. How this will look and how I will raise the funds to create this space are still in the works.
Below is a list of Things I will be looking into:
- Ways to present to staff
- Ways to raise funds
- Talk about donations
- Integrating resources and materials into classroom teacher units and lessons
- Best products for a beginner maker space

My weekend brain is telling me to add more to my blog before heading down for my brother’s weekend wedding on the coast. SO here goes……Looking forward with my project I feel that a website or blog would work really well to lay out my plans. There is a very real possibility that I will not be at the same school next year- and if that is the case I would like to have a well laid out maker space ‘to do’ list. Possibly instructions on how to run the Maker Space should I be at another school, how to use the tech resources and how to set up an engaging lunch time program for intermediate and primary students. I may use the wordpress platform again, it has been such a user friendly site to use. With a website I will be able to use and add to the online space whenever or where ever I end up!
