People and Skills Flyer

The People and Skills Specification provides a structure for verifying the skills and experiences that are needed to make a specific thing, by providing a shared taxonomy of skills and experiences and a framework for the recognition of this knowledge. This supports not only the ability to locate the expertise and skills needed to make a thing - it also gives individual makers the capability to signal their experiences and skills to potential employers, collaborators, and policy makers. This 1-page pdf flyer provides a brief overview of the spec, as well as links for people to get engaged in the ongoing development and application of People and Skills.

Makerspace Impact Indicators report V1

Makerspaces are viewed as useful labs in communities as they present users with the relevant tools and equipment that facilitate education, creativity and innovation. Unfortunately, tracking and measuring the impact of makerspaces in Africa has been a challenge and that can be partly attributed to the absence of clear impact indicators. In an attempt to contribute to solving the said challenge, this study presents 74 indicators that can be used by makerspaces in Africa to track and record their impact.
