Cranston Public Library
Series: Media Smart Libraries
Speaker(s): Jessica Ross, Project Manager for Agency by Design and Teaching Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education
This program has been canceled as of September 11. Librarians are rapidly embracing the maker movement but it is more than just tools and materials. What does learning look like during maker-centered activities? What kinds of thinking can be encouraged? How can we design for making, thinking, and learning in a library setting? In this interactive workshop, research developed at Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education will be shared through a series of hands-on activities aimed at exploring these questions and considering how pedagogical practice can support the core principles of maker-centered learning. This session is for participants at any stage in developing a maker program in their library or school. Participants are encouraged to bring a brown bag snack.
This workshop is part of the Media Smart Libraries program which was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14 and awarded to the URI Graduate School of Library and Information Studies.
Limited to 30 participants.
Intended Audience: Public Librarians, School Librarians
