How to Build Your Makerspace (EdSurge Guides)

How to Build Your Makerspace (EdSurge Guides) | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Learning by making has been around since long before edtech—just think about what the adventurous explorers or intrepid settlers of yore would have thought of "Do-It-Yourself." But with thousands of kid-friendly tech tools and a whole World Wide Web of resources out there, creative, interesting opportunities for learning-by-making abound for everyone.

Okay, so with all those resources, where should you start to build a makerspace? Here at EdSurge, we've rolled up our sleeves, put on our protective goggles, and built a Maker Guide from scratch, just for you. 

Read on for ideas from the educators and entrepreneurs who think making 24/7, including what is involved with project-based learning and making in the classroom and tried-and-true lessons from the field on starting your makerspace.

Making on a budget? We surely do. We've got ideas for stocking your space with resources from your arts and crafts closet, plus inspiration from educators working to bring makerspaces to low-income and all-girls classrooms.

The 'University Of Everywhere' Isn't For Everyone: The Future Of Learning Will Be A Big Tent

The 'University Of Everywhere' Isn't For Everyone: The Future Of Learning Will Be A Big Tent | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Last May, I used this column to argue that Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are more like health clubs than hospitals: Providing free access to a gym will encourage lots of healthy, motivated people to use it and get healthier. And that would be a good thing; healthier people will avoid costly visits to the hospital and will live longer, more productive lives. At the same time, though, doctors do not expect that access to a gym will automatically improve the health of less motivated people, especially those with serious health problems. Some will need a personal trainer to show them the ropes and hold them accountable, while others will require the kind of “high touch” care that doctors and hospitals provide.

Library Homework Help – What Works and What Doesn't? | TechSoup for Libraries

Library Homework Help – What Works and What Doesn't? | TechSoup for Libraries | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

According to a 2013 ALA survey, almost all U.S. public libraries now offer online and in-person homework assistance?. In rural areas, this service is especially important because the library offers high-speed broadband access that many homes can't afford.

Urban areas have their own challenges that also include lack of Internet access. We decided to have a look at what is working well — and not so well — in the world of library homework help programs.

Pew Research finds that 54 percent of teachers say all or almost all of their students have access at school to the digital tools they need to be academically successful, but just 18 percent say the same is true for their students at home. The Miami Herald recently reported on how critical the Miami Dade libraries are in addressing this need.

IMPROVING THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE (scaling the commons beyond the library) - The Ubiquitous Librarian - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

I wrote earlier about serving on a Student Experience Task Force. This was a yearlong project that brought together students and faculty with people from the budget office, facilities, student affairs, the Provost’s Office, and other units. It was an eclectic mix resulting in many diverse conversations. Personally, it was a perception-shifting experience and I learned to appreciate different challenges across campus.

Here is the final report.

New Study from Washington State Makes the Case for School Librarians | I Love Libraries

New Study from Washington State Makes the Case for School Librarians | I Love Libraries | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

As the nation celebrates April as School Library Month, it's a good time to reflect on the essential role that school librarians play in our children's education.  A recent study in the state of Washington showed the wisdom of investing in school librarians.  As part of the study, Dr. Elizabeth Coker conducted a data analysis of a 40-question survey conducted by the Washington State’s Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) among 1,486 of the 2,428 K-12 schools in the state.

The results of that study, which was undertaken on behalf of the Washington Library Media Association, were summed up in a report, Certified Teacher-Librarians, Library Quality and Student Achievement in Washington State Public Schools.  Those results showed that students attending schools with certified teacher-librarians perform better on standardized tests and are more likely to graduate.  The reason, the report states, is that certified teacher-librarians "are far more likely to be directly involved in teaching curriculum-designed around Common Core standards.

A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: Amazing! 74 Infographics for Teacher-Librarians (L.A. Teachers Too!) | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

When your budget is low on dollars, you need to become creative when it comes to everything in your school library. Since we have a computer lab in our library-media center, (and lots of wall space...) I have decorated the lab with posters and infographics. You might have seen some of my original work, including 7 Things to Know About EBSCO, and the READ poster. There are also many posters which help students format their research paper, search for Google images, and understanding search results. When I began this search I never expected to find so many infographics for school librarians! If you are a language arts teacher, you will also find many related to grammar and reading below.
