Two weeks ago, I was honored to present at the 2017 PA Forward Information Literacy Summit. The maker-themed summit was held at the Penn State University Libraries, where I presented an hour-long breakout session on makerspaces for elementary schools and public library children’s programs. Participants got to experiment and play with many of the materials that students use in our makerspace library centers, and it was just amazing to talk to both teacher-librarians and public children’s/YA librarians who came from all over Pennsylvania to learn from each other.
If you couldn’t make it to the Summit or were in another session, my “Making with Young Children” Google Slides presentation is embedded below. You’ll need to click through to view the slide notes and links to all of my resources.
