Librarians’ Insights on How to Integrate Technology into Makerspaces


Event Date & Time: Wednesday, April 4, 2018, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM ET / 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM PT

According to US Department of Labor, more than 65% of today’s students will grow up having careers that do not exist yet. Now, more than ever, it is highly crucial to prepare our students to become future-ready and have the confidence to invent the world they want to live in. A key aspect of that preparation is to equip them with 21st century skills and STEM knowledge.

In this webinar, Dr. Azadeh Jamalian, Head of Education Strategy at littleBits, discusses best practices on bringing hands-on coding and STEAM into your school’s library makerspace and STEM labs. She’ll review pilot and case studies examining STEM implementation in elementary and middle school libraries and makerspaces, and she’ll provide important take-aways applicable for different programs.

Whether you’re an educator inspiring the next generation of problem-solvers, a stakeholder involved in developing programs for your community, or interested in facilitating maker activities in your school or library setting, you will benefit from attending this session. Be sure to bring your questions!
