Presentation Title: Getting Started with Maker Ed!

Presentation Description: School libraries are leading the way as innovators in the area of Maker Ed. Join two elementary library media specialists as they share their experiences in creating makerspaces in their buildings. Whether you are a classroom teacher looking to incorporate different types of making in your classroom, a media specialist looking to get making going in your library space or an administrator looking for ways to begin this process in your school, this session will introduce you to the ideas behind Maker Ed, resources, including materials and guides, and how to incorporate them into your studentsÂ’ learning. Hear from students about their experiences with making and learning. Specific examples of student work will be included to give a complete picture of what Maker Ed can be!
