This is not new information for the well-connected educator; however, it would make a great article to share with teachers who haven't quite made the leap. Good suggestions!

Low Tech, High Gains: Karyn Peterson on Starting a Makerspace

Low Tech, High Gains: Karyn Peterson on Starting a Makerspace | Library Media Tools & Ideas | Scoop.it
Karyn Peterson gives a great perspective on the maker space movement in this School Library Journal article. Librarians in a rush to jump into "Makerspaces" might want to take a breath and look at the activities that already take place in the library. Sure, we'd all love to have 3D printers and robotics, but for many school librarians, that's just not financially feasible.

So, what about some low tech activities that can easily be rebranded? Instead of an arts and crafts program after schoo...

This could be a great learning station in your media center, an addition to your makerspace, or a tool to share with your ELA teachers who are working on the writing process. The article provides a very thorough description of Book Writer with a good critique of the tool and suggestions for use. Through collaborative planning, you could also think about using the final creations as part of your library's eBook collection!

I've seen this shared multiple times already, but wanted to save it here. Hopefully they will keep adding clips so I can use it to spice up my library announcements. Right now, it would lose appeal as there are a limited number of clips per word. Arthur can't possibly be the only source of the word "library!"
