Episode Info: Episode 30 - Making a Makerspace by Jeff Herb and Jon Samuelson | Instructional Tech Talk Episode Host: Jeff Herb Middle School Principal, Education Writer and Speaker FacebookTwitterGoogle+ Host: Jon Samuelson Technology Innovation Specialist Twitter Guest: Elissa Malespina Teacher Librarian Twitter Show Notes: Some questions we discussed were… What were your goals when creating your makerspace?
