What exactly is a makerspace ? Close your eyes. Imagine a space 100% dedicated to creativity. It has exclusive, high-tech tools you can’t find anywhere else. It is outfitted with plush, comfortable furniture that enhance hardcore brainstorming sessions. It’s open and spacious, but contained enough to not be overwhelming. There is only one thing asked of you when you enter the space: get creative.
These fantasy lands are real and they’re called makerspaces. Simply defined as collaborative work spaces found within schools, libraries, or other public/private facilities, makerspaces are dedicated to learning, exploration, and sharing. They bring the latest technology that individuals can’t find elsewhere into one space for students to test out. They encourage users to get outside of their comfort zones and blur academic lines.
In this report, we'll show you how leading-edge institutions such as the University of Texas, University of Delaware and Case Western have successfully designed, build and made the most of makerspaces.
In anticipation of the 2019 Next Generation Learning Spaces event, we sat down with a couple of past delegates to learn more about what they've gained from attending past NGLS events. The perfect document to give to your boss in order to secure your approval to attend, hear from NGLS advisory board members, speakers and more in this overview of why you can't afford to miss the 2019 NGLS whether you're goal is to take home industry best practices, advance in your career, discover new solutions or more!
