Great article about the variety of ways Makerspaces can take up residence in your library!

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, May 6, 2015 9:42 AM

Love this quote, "Educators are now focusing on how the maker movement can be truly meaningful: it’s not about where making is happening, but about how creating, experimenting, and collaborating impact education. In addition, some high schoolers tinkering their free periods away can discover a passion—sometimes leading to a future educational focus or even scholarship money."

Advocating for our libraries is essential and we need to remember not to be too busy to do it!

Tina Jameson's curator insight, October 24, 2013 6:35 PM

Why do we need librarians?  This booklet clearly directs the reader to consider whether their school library meets certain essential goals.

I love this - find the one that floats your boat and share it with administrators, teachers, and Central Office stakeholders. A picture can truly be worth 1,000 words.

While not specifically about art conservation, STEAM can include art conservation topics. I am excited about the recent STEAM initiatives at RISD and other places where they are trying to show the need for art in the curriculum.
