The Learning Commons Mindset | - 0 views

  •  
    " I walk into almost all of our schools in West Vancouver and very often the first thing people want to show me or talk to me about is the changes happening around the library.  Or more specifically, schools are taking great pride in their learning commons spaces that are developing.  While the physical spaces are exciting, the changes to our mindsets are far more powerful.  We are not destined for new schools in West Vancouver anytime soon but the rethink of the library has been both a symbolic and concrete shift in how we think about space and how we think about learning.  The school library - a centre piece in schools - is now the modern hub for learning."

(Rethinking) Makerspaces - @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch - 1 views

  •  
    "Kids have always made in my library.
    We encouraged digital and visual and dramatic and rhetorical creativity before, during, and after school.  But for a while, I've questioned the value of using already heavily used real estate to randomly carve out space for a 3D printer, electronics stations and sewing machines. I had my doubts about the makerspace movement in school libraries.
    A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to chat with Amos Blanton, project manager of the Scratch online community, and a member of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT Media Lab.  On his profile Amos notes:  I design and sustain creative learning environments for people with agency.
    Amos makes the case for makerspaces as powerful, authentic, relevant learning experiences, and for when and why library may be the very right space to create a makerspace."

Rifstation Play App - Business Insider - 0 views

  •  
    "I took piano lessons as a kid, but it's hard lugging a piano around when you want to take your tune-playing on the road. 
    I tried teaching myself some chords on the guitar, but it turns out that you need big, strong hands to press down on the strings hard enough to make music.

    My hands are neither big, nor are they strong.

    So instead I picked up the ukulele, and, using YouTube, taught myself how to play. 

    The problem is, I've run out of songs to play that are remedial enough for me to learn. That's where Riffstation Play comes in."
