Fellow Ambassador Linda Sweeting built upon this discussion with a “slow” Twitter chat, How Makers Make Classrooms Inclusive, as an opportunity for teachers to share their thoughts around the idea that the “creative process of taking an idea, developing it, using tools, and techniques to make it real” makes having a #makerspace in a CS classroom a really good match.
