By Luke Hokama

What are the varieties, differences, and commonalities in makerspaces in libraries, museums, community organizations, and schools? And what are some of the many practices and frameworks? In this webinar, Steve Davee, Director of Education at Maker Ed, discusses the Youth Makerspace Playbook, a report that both provides a bird’s-eye view of makerspace planning, as well as practical suggestions about space, materials, and sustainability. Also featured are Peter Wardrip (Learning Scientist, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh) who is working with IMLS to build a framework to support learning in museum and library makerspaces, Lyndsey Runyan (Creative Spaces Learning Coordinator, Multnomah County Library), and K-Fai Steele (YOUmedia Learning Labs Network). Don’t miss this conversation about the field of makerspaces in a variety of educational environments.
