Designing and creating makerspaces [webinar]

The World Economic Forum recently projected that by 2020, complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity will be the top 3 skills required in the workforce. Increasingly, teachers are turning to makerspaces as one critical way to develop these abilities in students and prepare them for the future. Makerspaces are more than just a room in a school – they’re the reflection of a culture shift. By combining them with design thinking, they can transform the way we think about student-led learning.

Makerspaces for Learning in Your Library

Learning in a digital age requires a different set of skills for students today. Within this evolving digital ecosystem, many libraries are investigating the use of makerspaces to engage learners and effectively provide them with critical skills for the digital age. The essence of a makerspace is that it helps ignite curiosity and exploration in students about things that interest them. Webinar: Makerspaces: the library's legal answers. Library makerspaces are truly transformative environments that advance learning and innovation in communities.

webinar: Makerspaces: the library's legal answers

This space is a great new way where people can gather to create, invent, and learn, but you will need to be aware of and understand legal implications and concepts related to patent, trademark, and product liability. The Library’s Legal Answers team—Tomas Lipinski and Gretchen McCord—will guide you in a positive approach to library makerspaces, true to the library mission of intellectual freedom, access, and learning. Cutting through any alarmism about the possibility of such things as guns, sex toys, or illegal drugs being made using 3D printers, they will show you how to limit your liability with consistent practices and sensible policy statements, covering topics such as: - Key clauses for waivers and partnership agreements. - How to file a one-page form with the U.S.

Makerspaces – Free Webinar Series Starts 10/15

Each webinar will be an hour-long exploration of a makerspace (also known as a “fab lab,” for fabrication lab) implemented in a library, followed by a Q&A with a staff panel. Makerspaces are taking hold in the library world and they are spreading quickly, popping up in libraries of all types and sizes. Makerspaces give people a place to pursue their own interests in building things, using tools (physical or virtual) and connecting with one another. Libraries have expanded on traditional library services to provide DIY/craft/make services, setting up spaces within their buildings and within their communities that allow people to do anything from building model airplanes to 3-D printing to self-publishing novels.

Each session is a visit to another Makerspace in another library, register now and see them all! •Monday, Oct. 15, 1 p.m Central: Westport (Conn.)

Kick Off the School Year with Design Thinking and Makerspaces

Design Thinking encourages students to engage in empathy, define problems, prototype, iterate, and solve real-world problems. Makerspaces help students foster critical thinking, open-ended creativity and iterative design. In this webinar, Beth and Douglas presented the design thinking process. They showed examples of different kinds of makerspaces, from simple to complex, and discuss how teachers can incorporate design thinking into their learning environments.

Thankfully, I am finally over being sick, and this week I want to share with you a webinar I recently presented on the top of makerspaces in libraries, with a special focus on academic libraries.

Makerspaces: The Now Revolution in School Libraries. Our student’s needs, interests, talents, and attentions continually evolve.

Makerspaces: The Now Revolution in School Libraries

School librarians are progressive and proactive, and adapt to create new ways to connect to patrons and re-envision the facility to better facilitate changes in those patrons. Considering the new wave of participatory learners and the change in schools to more student-led learning, the impact on engaging patrons in school libraries is tremendous, making the library a destination. One hot topic hitting public and school libraries is makerspaces where students (and sometimes staff and parents) create, problem solve, and develop thinking. Florida Library Webinars.
