How to Create Easy DIY MaKeyMaKey Storage - @DianaLRendina #makered #pure #genius  | Library Evolution: the changing shape of libraries and librarianship | Scoop.it
When I first started the Stewart Makerspace back in 2014, one of the earliest tools that I purchased was a MaKeyMaKey.  My students loved it, and because they are so affordable (only $50 each) I was able to get a set of 10 of them through a DonorsChoose project, allowing students to work on longer term projects without having to take it apart everytime.  However, storing that many MaKeyMaKeys can be tricky.  I started out with keeping them in the original boxes and storing them all together in a large plastic box, but it became difficult to wrangle all the wires back in each time.

Doing More With The Classroom Makerspace @Web20Classroom Steven Anderson

Doing More With The Classroom Makerspace @Web20Classroom Steven Anderson | Library Evolution: the changing shape of libraries and librarianship | Scoop.it
I've had the chance to visit several makerspaces in schools all over. It seems more and more schools are creating these spaces to give kids a creative outlet. In it's simplest form Makerspaces are places where kids can explore and, well, make stuff. The idea is that we provide the tools, resources and time to see what can be created. Many maker spaces are simple with just random supplies donated by parents. While other spaces are decked out with 3D Printers, electronics, the works. And there are spaces in between. The point isn't really what is in the space. The point is what comes out of it and giving kids the freedom to explore making stuff that could turn out to be pretty innovative.

Just like technology and how it is used in the classroom, makerspaces need to be less about the stuff that's in them and more about the questions that are asked and the problems that are solved. Sometimes when I am at a conference or read an article on the topic it seems there is more emphasis on the stuff rather than what to do with the stuff. And that sort of flies in the face of the idea of making and tinkering. Sometimes in that exploration purpose is found and questions we weren't even asking are answered.

The point is don't just have a makerspace and buy lots of expensive equipment and have kids make cellphone cases and door stops. Guide them and their exploration. What problems in their world do they see? How can making help? What are they curious about? How can one thing they take apart here, effect how something else works here? Makerspaces should be filled with more questions, problems and failures than answers, solutions and successes.

Resources for Maker Ed - The Book Chook  @BookChook | Library Evolution: the changing shape of libraries and librarianship | Scoop.it
Maker Ed is a wonderful new way of thinking about something that’s been around for a while: practical projects or “making”. I love this idea because of my passionate belief in the importance of creating, and of encouraging kids to create at home and at school. Making can be incorporated into different curricula, and maker spaces set up in classroom corners, libraries or be pop-up spaces that enable more fluidity. Materials for making can be as varied as paper, buttons, LEGO, fabric, or clay and as technologically advanced as photopolymer for 3D printing, special kits or books about coding.

A very relevant question. Educators are in an uncomfortable position between the right to express themselves as they like in a public (or private) forum and their social role as educators and 'role models'.

Library Eye Candy from Joyce Valenza!

Library Eye Candy from Joyce Valenza! | Library Evolution: the changing shape of libraries and librarianship | Scoop.it

Joyce Valenza writes: "There’s redecorating and there’s just plain old decorating.

When it comes time for a bit of library refreshing, in the form of posters and bulletin boards, there are so many wonderful shared options. In the spirit of fall refreshing, I thought I’d refresh on of my posts, Fall decorating: a round-up of smart (and free) posters, from a few years back.

As I mentioned back then, every year, as we move back into our libraries and classrooms, we search for meaningful, inspiring, attractive visuals to fill our display cases, to grace our bulletin boards, to embed on our websites and most importantly, to engage and inspire those who visit."
