At public and independent schools across the country there is a an explosion of new Innovation Labs, Makerspaces, and Library Learning Commons. These new learning environments go by many names - Innovation Labs, IDEA Labs, FabLabs, weCreate Centers, Learning Commons, etc. These centers provide new learning environments for students to work individually or collaboratively on entrepreneurial, STEM, STEAM, and Design Thinking projects. Each of these centers also provide programs and pedagogy that together with the new learning environments develop a culture of self-directed and self-assessing learners.
