There are many pathways to learning and learning is happening everywhere: schools, libraries, clubs, community centers, homes, and religious organizations. A makerspace culture, one that emphasizes creation over memorization, open-source sharing over siloed knowledge, and process over product, gives new ways for students to explore concepts and show what they know. Coupled with makerspace culture is a movement to flexibly acknowledge growth: digital or open badges. In this session, we’ll talk about budget-friendly school library makerspaces, strategies for promoting healthy makerspace culture, and validating growth via digital badges that go far beyond the sticker charts of the past.
