Episode 5 of Design and Play is all about makerspaces and conferences. For schools looking to create a making culture at their school, Dean shares insights into his school's journey. There is some great advice for schools just starting and for schools a little way down the path. We also spend time unpacking conferences as a whole. Looking at them from a multitude of angles; attendee, presenter, organiser, we talk about the fit of conferences in the modern professional learning portfolio. The TeachTehcPlay conference provides most of the inspiration for our conversation.
