Connect, Create, Collaborate: Sparking the Maker Movement at your Library

Connect, Create, Collaborate: Sparking the Maker Movement at your Library | 21st Century Libraries | Scoop.it

A makerspace (sometimes also referred to as a hackerspace, hackspace or hacklab) is a location where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, electronics, engineering, and/or digital or electronic art, can connect, create and collaborate. Makerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops, and/or studios where hackers and makers come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Nearly 60% of Teens Use Their Own Mobile Devices in School for Learning

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Nearly 60% of Teens Use Their Own Mobile Devices in School for Learning | 21st Century Libraries | Scoop.it

This year’s report, Digital Learning 24/7: Understanding Technology – Enhanced Learning in the Lives of Today’s Students, provides landmark findings on the efficacy and value associated with popular digital learning initiatives: blended learning, online learning, school-assigned mobile devices and STEM learning. The views, values and experiences of students taking part in these digital learning initiatives are compared with students in more traditional classroom-based education. “We hope by highlighting the views and values of today’s students, especially those students who are living a digital learning experience, this year’s report stimulates new discussions around the effective use of digital tools, resources and content to support student learning,” said Julie Evans CEO of Project Tomorrow.
