If You Build It, They Will Come: Sharing Makerspace Bins @ Upper Grand District School Board
Read about a unique project in the Upper Grand District School Board involving teacher-librarians developing a centralized collection of makerspaces bins connected to areas of the Ontario curriculum to support and develop makerspace pedagogy. The authors document the successes and challenges of launching the project as well as share reflections, resources and future hopes based on the project’s success. Included is a delightful slideshow illustrating the success of the makerspace bins over time in an elementary school.
