As originally Scooped by @Anne Whisken; I appreciate the points the author makes re: setting up a space where it's not "us" and "them" -- also appreciated his discussion of the Apple Stores and how that might work in a library space.

Sue Osborne's curator insight, August 13, 2015 10:55 PM

I like the observation that no matter what the desk looks like, the most important thing about a library desk is who staffs it!

Carly Pechal's curator insight, September 24, 2015 11:04 PM

In this article, I directly relate the concepts about Emerging Technologies being used to enhance active learning with education. By allowing different forms of technologies to be integrated into learning environments allows for a great aspect to be looked at by the learners exploring it. The Atomic Object Technology Showcase at GVSU is used as a technology exploration area that happens in a particular space. To me, I directly connect this university level practice to public educations Maker Spaces in school Libraries. Being able to use technology is a setting that exploration is acceptable allows for a safe state felt by the learner to test and maneuver different forms of technology. This practice has been shown to be very beneficial as well as allowed different individuals access to materials they are not typically accessible to.
