School libraries not what they used to be - Greenwich Time

School libraries not what they used to be - Greenwich Time | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Fifth graders Olivia Vagner, left, and Lillian Mullen play mancala in the new "learning commons" of the International School at Dundee in Old Greenwich, Conn. Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015. The school transformed its library media center into a much more interactive space where students spend more time doing hands-on activities. There is a new "maker space" where students create CAD designs to print with a 3D printer, different teaching spaces often incorporating outside programs and STEM activities all while keeping the elements of a traditional library media center."
