Make It! @ Your Library - PSLA 2015

8,573 views

Published on

PA School Librarians Association Conference Presentation - The maker movement is gaining momentum in education, and libraries can be part of it by creating makerspaces to connect student learning at home and at school. Makerspaces give students the space to explore, problem-solve, try and fail, fix, create, and learn through experience. In this session, you’ll get to try different hands-on tools for “making,” and learn how to start a makerspace, even if you don’t have any extra library space or DIY experience.
