As part of our presentation, we emphasized the importance of collaboration and teamwork to the growth and continued evolution and success of our makerspace. The Creation Station would not be what it is at this point if not for students, teachers, parents, facilities, administration, and IS all working together in some way to make it work. Teachers have already started talking with me about ideas they have for next year.
As part of my own ongoing process of reflection and professional growth regarding the makerspace, I’ll be attending a couple of professional development workshops/conferences over the summer. I’ll also be exploring ideas and working on ways to grow my abilities in my other responsibilities here at ESH – working with and providing teachers with opportunities to integrate technology for learning and teaching, managing iPads, and providing technical support.
There’s always something new to learn.
