Innovative librarians are creating makerspaces and STEAM programs for children and youth. The Connected Learning Alliance (CLA) will develop an open online course and professional network for all librarians to learn from these innovators, build their own programs, and make STEAM opportunities available to underserved youth.
The CLA will partner with the Los Angeles Public Library’s science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) experts, the LA Makerspace. We will model our course on Connected Courses, a successful professional development network for innovative faculty. Through webinars, twitter chats, and syndicated blogs, Connected Courses for Librarians will provide professional development for librarians in STEAM areas.
Karen Miller's insight:
Very exciting to see the development of an open online course and professional network for librarians leading the charge on makerspaces and STEAM programs.
