How have you used littleBits in the past? What’s worked best?
At the core of my philosophy of a school library is the whole idea of creating a participatory culture. I always strive to provide as many opportunities as possible for my students to do something productive while in the space. I feel that school libraries should not only provide access to information, but they should provide that same access to tools and resources that allow our students to invent, tinker, create and learn. The Maker Movement has provided the opportunity for our students to move from consumption to creation and to turn their knowledge into action. My library has a makerspace in it and one of our ‘fixed’ stations is a littleBits bar. At this bar, we have all kinds of Bits for students to use all throughout the school day. Our makerspace is an informal learning space, so what worked best for us in giving the students the opportunity to explore and create freely. littleBits has been an amazing part of our student-driven space and has given students the opportunity to explore their passions, with littleBits being the tool to take them to places only their imaginations dreamt of before.
