E203 - Pushing Beyond Future-Ready: Creating a Bold Context for K-12 Libraries

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
David Jakes, Founder and Chief Design Officer, David Jakes Designs LLC

There are a number of ways to describe the conditions for learning that support working, learning, and contributing as a citizen in a world in perpetual beta. Educators have described this landscape as “21st century,” “next-generation,” and most recently “future ready.” In this session, we discuss five provocative shifts in library practice that can establish a new reality for what “library” means and how it serves a school community. Our goal is to push on the boundaries of the design of libraries. Together, we consider the transformative programmatic directions that K–12 libraries can take to create a remarkable experience for students, an experience that prepares them to be agile and participatory learners and citizens.
