Using Makerspaces to Build Teacher/Librarian Collaboration

Mar 6, 2019 6:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


This session will demonstrate to participants how use of 3D printing can help teachers augment their lessons, develop higher order thinking and research, and give students exposure to 21st century technology. School librarian Harry Ostlund and social studies specialist Ryan Fontanella will share how their campus/district worked to create “archival boxes” - boxes of premade lessons incorporating various elements of the library’s digital and print resources available for checkout by teachers for use in the classroom.

Learning Objectives:
  • Teacher/Librarian collaboration best practices
  • Creative and engaging use of Makerspaces found in most libraries
  • Modeling of excellent integration of 3D printing and pedagogy
