Skip to 0 minutes and 2 secondsWelcome to the final week of the course. I hope you enjoyed week two of where you were introduced to what equipment you need in order to set up the makerspace of your dreams. You were also provided with basic health and safety guidance to implement in your space to show that it runs smoothly, despite all the frantic hands-on making. In this final week of the course, we will discover different perspectives on learning environments, and discuss the effect they can have on students' learning.

Welcome to Week 3

Hello! Welcome back to Build a Makerspace for Young People.

I hope you enjoyed Week 2, where you were introduced to what equipment you need in order to set up the makerspace space of your dreams. You also identified who can help you set up, manage, and run your space, and you updated your action plan with your next steps.

This week we’ll explore: - Different perspectives on learning environments - Identify the key performance indicators for your makerspace - Reflect on your action plan and share it with others on this course

Remember that the course is available whenever you wish over the next four weeks, so if you need to take a couple of days to reflect or gather any materials, you can still enjoy the learning materials here on your own time.

Next up, you’ll hear first-hand from an educator who created a very unique and mobile makerspace: what worked, what didn’t, and what’s next. As you read his case study, make sure to note ideas that could be helpful for your own makerspace action plan.
