Libraries Supporting Teacher Collaboration, Student Voice and School Design

This two-day statewide library conference is sponsored by the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE), Office of Curriculum and Instructional Design, School Library Services, in partnership with the Pacific Literacy Consortium.

The purpose of the conference is to equip HIDOE school library staff with tools, strategies and resources that focus on the three high impact strategies of teacher collaboration, student voice and school design to transform school library programs.

Professional development, training and program planning opportunities that grow school library staff knowledge and skills that best support information literacy, pre-k literacy skills, early literacy skills, brain-based learning, and computer science will be provided. Library professional development is aligned to the American Association for School Librarians (AASL) 2017 National School Library Standards and Future Ready Librarians Framework.

While I researched, designed & equipped my Makerspace, I kept hearing that voice in my head “If you build it, [they] will come.” And while a few curious teachers and eager students did come, most stayed away. Creating and filling the makerspace doesn’t guarantee a crowd. Instead, I’ve learned it’s what the makerspace offers and how I promote it that draws participation. Learn how to market and create programming for your makerspace that invites students, teachers and families to take ownership and get involved in your school’s makerspace.
