“The best MakerSpace is between your own ears!”
These words of wisdom came from Gary Stager, PhD, lecturer and renowned leader in the Maker movement. The EA team had the pleasure of hearing Gary speak at this year’s ATLIS (Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools) in Atlanta last week and were so impressed by his passion, commitment and dedication to introducing MakerSpaces to children all over the world.
According to Gary, “we have an obligation to introduce children to things they don’t yet know they love.” To learn more about ways to introduce innovation into your classroom, check out Gary’s book, Invent To Learn. Happy reading – and making!
