A Maker Space is a place where students have the opportunity to ‘make’. They are encouraged to tinker and play, create and share with their classmates! Experience the fun, wonder and collaboration of ‘making’ and learn about one school’s award winning Maker Space. Teachers will learn how they can create a making mindset in their classroom or library. We will investigate how “making” provides learners with opportunities to be critical and creative thinkers, collaborators, designers, problem solvers, risk takers and reflectors. Participants will have a chance to see inside the “makerspace” at École Victoria-Albert School Learning Commons and will be given the opportunity to have a unique “making” experience using the repurposed materials at ArtsJunktion.
Renee Sanguin, the Inquiry and Innovation Support teacher at École Victoria-Albert School facilitates
learning in the library learning commons and in classrooms. Renee is called upon regularly to facilitate adult learning sessions and workshops for teachers within Winnipeg School Division and beyond.
