Collectively Flourishing

Randy Swearer, EdTech Digest, Nov 08, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some good thoughts with respect to maker spaces (quoted):

  • Makerspaces should never be owned by single departments or disciplines;
  • Whenever possible there should be a real-world purpose to the making
  • The flow from construction from studio to fabrication lab is critical.
  • Eliminate barriers to creation by avoiding as many prerequisites as possible.

Accdording to Swearer, "The collaborative environment makerspaces create helps students develop a sense of empowerment and resourcefulness. Thus, they acquire the desire and ability to create change through making."
