Invent To Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom by Sylvia Libow Martinez (Author), Gary S. Stager

This is a great resource for any teacher who wants to create a “maker space” in their classroom or begin to incorporate Maker Space learning into your curriculum. 

I have taken a workshop with Gary Stager and know him online (find him on twitter here. His work is really great.

here is a summery:

Join the maker movement!
There’s a technological and creative revolution underway. Amazing new tools, materials and skills turn us all into makers. Using technology to make, repair or customize the things we need brings engineering, design and computer science to the masses. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. The active learner is at the center of the learning process, amplifying the best traditions of progressive education. This book helps educators bring the exciting opportunities of the maker movement to every classroom.

Also here is a great article by the author
