DEFINING THE LEVELS OF MAKER SPACE
NJTEEA has worked with teachers across the state in various types of maker spaces in order to define what makes a "good" maker space. As a result, NJTEEA has defined five different levels of maker spaces, each with its own unique qualities.
Visit NJTEEA at the 2017 New Jersey School boards workshop or the Fall Conference for more info. An abbreviated handout and slide show is linked below.
