Library of future ready to open in Colorado Springs - Colorado Springs Gazette | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

By Robin Intemann:

 

"When Library 21c, the Pikes Peak Library District's newest facility, opens next month, patrons will see more than a repository for stacks of material.

The facility on the city's north side will promote experiential learning with the latest in technology, access to 3-D printers, sewing machines and other tools, plus space - lots and lots of space.

Traditional resources, including books, audio and visual media and e-books, will endure.

It will replace the nearby Briargate Library, which closed Sunday so that materials could be moved to the new building before its June 21 opening. The district's administrative offices also have moved to the new facility.

As libraries emerge as places to create and interact, PPLD, through Library 21c, is anticipating demands and desires, officials said.

"This is cutting edge," said Dee Vazquez Sabol, PPLD community engagement and outreach officer. "We have been planning for the past five years so we weren't struggling to catch up."

Library 21c is the first of its kind in the country, Sabol said. Several libraries around the country have similar components, but none has so many features that patrons can use in one place."

Well-known K-12 tech expert, Kathy Schrock, presents a helpful list, mostly aimed at K-12 folks, but the list offers a model for thinking about iPad use in the classroom.

Karen Williams's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:04 AM

Thorough research, practical guides and pedegogy to iPads.

I was thinking a few of these would be good to use. I think playing around would be best!

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Collections, staff and space dedicated to teens have existed in libraries for years. Now, libraries are shifting those resources to developing learning spaces where teens can create content instead of consume it. Research has shown the widespread positive impacts of afterschool programs on academic achievement and social behavior, especially in low-income communities. The need for spaces that engage teens becomes even greater during summer break, when teens have more free time, said Elyse Adler with the Nashville Public Library.

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy.
