Went to Barron Elementary School today to observe their Maker Space. Barron is a public school with around 300 students – supposedly the ‘
poorest’ school in the district… if this is the poorest, I cannot imagine what the richest schools look like!
We spoke to the incredible Smita Kolhatkar who idealized and implemented the Maker Space in the school – now all schools in the district are using her work as a model. Inspiring. Here’s her 1to1 iPad blog and her EdTech blog.
Now off to write the report on the visit.
