First time here? Welcome!
There’s a lot of great information and resources here on Renovated Learning, and it can be a little overwhelming at first. This page is a great way to get started. There’s a little backstory to the blog, advice on how to navigate, and links to some of the most popular posts. Enjoy!
A little about the blog & me
I’ve been a teacher librarian since 2010. I blogged on and off for awhile, but in 2014 I began to blog regularly as a way to thoroughly document the creation of the makerspace at Stewart Middle Magnet in Tampa. As I went through this makerspace journey, I began to gather together resources and post advice here. Eventually, I changed the blog name to Renovated Learning to reflect that this blog is about rethinking, remaking, and renovating learning and how we create learning experiences as educators.
How to navigate
The menu bar at the top of the page is a great place to start, as it contains some of the main information on the blog, including the About page, Our Makerspace Journey, links to presentations I have done, curated resources and contact information. You’ll find links to my social media pages, a search box to find specific articles, and categories. (Note: This menu bar doesn’t always show up on mobile devices)
Whenever you’re looking at the blog feed or an individual post, you’ll see a sidebar on the right. This includes my social links, newsletter sign-up and blog e-mail subscription sign-up. Check out the posts below to see some of my best work.
