In recent years, an increasing interest in establishing and engaging
with makerspaces in the context of formal educational settings
in primary and lower-secondary schools in Denmark has grown.
Initiatives to establish makerspaces as formal learning spaces in
Denmark can be linked to international concepts and thoughts
about FabLabs, Hackerspaces, and the Maker movement. A mapping
of educational makerspace initiatives aiming for students in
primary and lower-secondary schools in Denmark has been conducted
as part of a larger evaluation of 17 educational makerspace
establishments in Danish municipalities. This paper presents early
findings from the evaluation. The overall aim of the evaluation
is to gain knowledge about makerspace settings as learning environments
and the potential and challenges such settings pose to
pedagogical practice.
