smiley LIVE WEBINAR: Maker space, maker movement, what is it, why do we do it? 11th November, 3.45-4.45pm

As Mark Osborne shared in the Ulearn showcase,

"Technology has now become inaccessible in terms of maintenance and modification. There's an ‘open hardware movement’ – designed so we can, “open stuff up and find out how it works” like we used to do in Granddad’s shed. Here we can share a space and our knowledge together to solve problems – with open-sourced materials, software and hardware (free, low cost computers). “Let’s create kid-centric autonomous zones, where we’re taking back control of our technology."

Come join Leanne Stubbing (Kelburn Normal School and presenter in our last unconference webinar) and Nicki Tempero (LwDT facilitator) as they talk about the philosophy that's driving their creative, problem solving learning activities in their schools. We'd also love to hear your experiences with 'tinkering', 'maker space' or the 'maker movement'.

This webinar will be supported by a thread in the Enabling e-Learning | Teaching group
