School Library Buzz
Makerspaces and learning commons, special spaces set aside for collaborative work, are gaining popularity in school libraries across the country. Additional trends include STEM-focused programming such as Hour of Code, and ALA’s Libraries Transform campaign — raising awareness of the role libraries play in the digital age.
One of the most important discussions school librarians are having these days is about how to consider the next generation of students…’That means looking at how to develop autonomous, autodidactic learners. We need kids to be independent learners and thinkers.’ (School Library Journal)
