Scholarship now includes learning by doing, and therefore, the Maker Movement is relevant to our new concept learning.

NaNoWriMo: what to do next [in your library] | Library as Incubator Project | Libraries as Sites of Enchantment, Participatory Culture, and Learning | Scoop.it

Can you believe we’re nearing the finish of National Novel Writing Month?! As Wrimos scramble to reach their 50,000 word goal, we’ve been talking about the myriad ways that writers (and really, artists of all kinds) can use their libraries (local and digital) to inspire and inform their projects.

Our NaNoWriMo series touches on a lot of topics, from inspiration to research to tips for using your library to stave off or conquer writer’s block. So it seemed only appropriate that our final two posts in the series should touch on ways for Wrimos to make excellent use of their libraries after the writing logs are updated for the last time.

Always In Stitches at Abington Community Library | Library as Incubator Project | Libraries as Sites of Enchantment, Participatory Culture, and Learning | Scoop.it

When we first put a call out for library-incubated quilters on the site, I was delighted to connect with Leah Rudolph, Library Director for the Abington Community Library in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, and to learn about Always In Stitches, the quilting group her library hosts regularly. Always In Stitches not only uses the library space as a studio, but also contributes to a wide variety of community outreach and education initiatives, making this program a perfect example of the Library-as-Incubator!

Project Profiles Your Friendly Neighborhood Library: An Inviting Space, a Family Place | Libraries as Sites of Enchantment, Participatory Culture, and Learning | Scoop.it

"The Family Place model is built around the idea that literacy begins at birth and that libraries can foster community growth by nourishing families," continues Aldrich. Spaces are designed for parent/caregiver-child interaction, "but also for community interaction. Experts in the community are brought into the space to give presentations and serve as resources for parents."

#UnfollowBullying - Recognizing the Power of Student-Created Content | NWP Digital Is | Libraries as Sites of Enchantment, Participatory Culture, and Learning | Scoop.it

If you are planning to submit nominations for the 2012 Edublogs Awards, I hope you will consider #UnfollowBullying as a candidate for the Best Twitter Hashtag category. #UnfollowBullying, a student-created, student driven initiative, is in recognition that students are the ones who will lead the charge in their online communities to ensure that all students are treated with respect and kindness. Past winners in the Best Twitter Hashtag category have (simply) created a stand alone hashtag. One of the many distinguishing features of #UnfollowBullying is that the hashtag comes with a dynamic online student toolkit to help students everywhere stand up, speak out and be the change.
