Makerspace Webinar from the Texas State Library & Archives

Makerspaces: Curating, Creating, Collaboration

Wed, April 8, 2015,  2:00–3:00 PM CST

A Makerspace is a place for curation, design, collaboration, creation, and evaluation. In education, Makerspaces must have clear goals, ties to the curriculum, student led events, and a place for students to take initiative.

This webinar will be presented by elementary librarians Nancy Jo Lambert of Frisco ISD, Chair-Elect of the Texas Library Association’s Children’s Round Table, and Shawna Ford of Weatherford ISD, both popular presenters at TCEA and TLA. In this webinar, Nancy Jo and Shawna will walk participants through the process of initiating a Makerspace with both no-tech and high-tech resources. They will also discuss the ways in which each of them have created times and places for students to participate in Makerspace activities.
