Abstract: Makerspaces have recently entered educational discussions as a way to develop the problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and digital skills needed for the 21st century. But there is an added affordance – makerspaces as powerful learning environments for teachers, as delineated in the Teacher Effectiveness Framework (TEF), (2009). Inherent in the design of makerspaces are opportunities for teacher collaboration and valuable feedback through multiple iterative learning designs, as well as long-term reflection and application of learning. This article describes a primary school’s makerspace journey 1.0, and the opportunities it provided for teachers to apply what they were learning from the TEF.
