As the school librarian, I started a small Maker Space, "the Creation Station" in the school's library in Vernon and would like to do the same here at MJS. In my efforts to follow best practices, I've read Sylvia Libow Martinez & Gary Stager's Invent to Learn, AnnMarie Thomas' Making Makers, Jackie Gerstein's The Educator as a Maker Educator, The Makerspace Playbook, Laura Fleming's Worlds of Making, the articles curated here, and attended numerous webinars, in addition to following #makered on Twitter and continually reading shared posts etc. A summary of my thoughts and initial purchase considerations, prepared for district administration can be found here. This being said, Maker Education revolves around the concepts of embodied cognition, "learning by doing" and collaborating with other makers, and so, there's no better way to truly get it, than participating in it! With this in mind, I happily attended my first Maker Faire.
