MakerSpace in the Classroom (or School Library)
3 Graduate Level In-Service Credits / 45 hours, Instructor: Shannon Mersand August 1-30, December 1-30, May 1-30

Adams State University 20544 - ED 589 

A MakerSpace is a place where students utilize materials to solve problems, design solutions, and use critical thinking skills to make sense of the world around them. They can be a separate space, such as in an empty classroom, a library media center or a community space, or they can be incorporated into your existing classroom. MakerSpaces are firmly grounded in educational theory and are one way to increase student engagement and achievement while still meeting national and state level learning standards. Educational theory, types of thinking, and design models that support making, as well as the role of the teacher and the student, and what a maker environment looks like are explored. Real examples and projects will be created to start making with your students right away, no matter your budget. Learn how makerspace and the maker movement are transforming learning using hands-on, student driven projects that tie into Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math (STEAM) and also ELA, Social Studies, LOTE, ELL, ESL, and other subject areas. This course is also appropriate for Special Education, Career and Technical Educators, and School Media Specialists, N-12.
