E101 - Making a Makerspace–One Year In

10:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Bonsai (Portola Hotel)
Jessica Simons, Librarian, Moreau Catholic High School

How can school libraries introduce maker-centered education to support student learning? In a hands-on session, Moreau Catholic High School librarian Jessica Simons showcases how the Library and Learning Commons team researched, strategized, purchased and deployed equipment, and promoted the integration of the Maker Lab into the school's curriculum. The session also covers challenges faced during the implementation, lessons learned in Year 1 and plans for the future. This project has been another chapter in the evolution of the school library from a traditional space to a multidimensional support center for curriculum and student engagement.
