Mobile Makerspace Resources
The Richland School District is a rural school district located in Richland Center, Wisconsin. The district is comprised of 5 buildings that contain nearly 1400 PK-12 students.
The mobile makerspace idea is new in the district. I started working on bringing this mobile makerspace to the students in the district when I started working at the district in 2016. My position is a “Technology Integrationist” - so my primary role is to work with teachers on 1:1/small & large group professional development. But, this idea came to light when several teachers expressed an interest in bringing more makerspace activities into their classrooms.
Right now, I work with various classrooms across the district on a sporadic basis. My goal is not only to work more with the students, but to instruct teachers on how to infuse the makerspace idea into their classroom on a more regular basis.
The different technologies that we currently work with in the mobile makerspace vary from making paper circuits and coding, to working with robots and augmented/virtual reality.
Below the resources list is a slideshow of all the pictures from the poster session and more!
