Problem Scoping Design Thinking and Close Reading: Makerspaces in the School Library
Blakemore, Megan
Knowledge Quest, v46 n4 p66-69 Mar-Apr 2018
Makerspaces, collaborative workspaces stocked with materials and tools for creating, building, designing, and learning, are becoming more and more common in schools and, in particular, in school libraries. Makerspaces in the school library allow for connections between making and literacy. Indeed, such connections are authentic and natural as real-world engineers practice multiple forms of literacy. Problem scoping is part of the problem-definition phase of the design process. The design process starts with problem definition, followed by brainstorming, designing, building, testing (repeated as necessary), and is finalized by showcasing or sharing work. This article presents approaches to problem scoping in Makerspaces.
