After Access—Libraries and Digital Empowerment [Closed] Forum/Update/Assembly Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 06
Description :

The Digital Inclusion Survey and its predecessors document the technology infrastructure public libraries leverage with and for our communities. This is complemented by Pew Research about how Americans are using technology and libraries and reports from the Aspen Institute, ALA and IMLS. Together these resources point to expanding roles for libraries in addressing technology adoption and application, as well as access, needs. This invitation-only program will explore these themes and identify specific actions for advancing digital inclusion through libraries in partnership with other national and local entities.

How Makerspaces and DIY Science Can Promote STEM Learning at Every Age Author Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
124 (N)
Description :

Long before atom-smashers and deep-space probes, there were no separate classes of people labeled scientists or inventors. Fundamental breakthroughs in science and technology were made by ordinary people who felt a passion to explore, build, and create with the tools at hand. Today, the economic importance of STEM is greater than ever, and devices like 3D printers and rich sources of scientific understanding online can empower individuals to new success—if they are properly motivated to engage with STEM subjects and if they have access to those resources. The role that libraries can play in making those connections has therefore never been more crucial.

John Rennie, editorial director of MHE’s AccessScience, will lead this panel of Makerspace innovators and leading librarians. They will discuss the best practices for libraries that want to encourage hands-on exploration and curiosity-driven learning of STEM subjects, with case studies from successful programs across a wide range of ages. They will also look at exciting new information resources that can help libraries and their users develop the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in a Maker-friendly world.
