Description from program:

Find out why the "Maker Movement" is becoming prominent in school libraries and how you can transform your library into an active hub where students are encouraged to foster their ingenuity with strong technological skills. Participants will have time for hands-on exploration of typical projects that utilize the design process of problem-based learning. Learn about Makerspaces from concept to curriculum connections including practical applications. From low tech to high tech, students capitalize on their natural curiosity to problem solve using 21st century skills. No matter if you are just starting out or a leader in the Maker Education Movement, come learn how you can encourage a "culture of creativity and discovery" in your school library.
