The Classroom or Library as a Maker Space

User Generated Education

Articles, resources on social media, and conference presentations on these topics are proliferating at a rate that most educators are now familiar with maker education. They often contain the tools, machinery, and technologies associated with making – 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, high tech robotics, vocational tech machinery.
