Fred Forward 2014
I had the great challenge and honor to represent LittleeLit at Fred Forward last week at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh. It was a challenge because I was on a panel on Maker Spaces in Libraries (a little outside of my area of expertise, but definitely related. Many thanks to Mike Robb, Director of Education and Research at the Fred Rogers Center, for asking me to present and pushing my boundaries with the content) and also because the room was full of people whose research I cite, and whose practices & policies have guided most of the work we’ve done here at LittleeLit.
Here is what I shared, and here are a list of resources from my session and others. Also, the “come and sit down” song that I sang after our hands-on activity was one I learned from the amazing and inspiring Francie Dillon. Won’t you come and sit down with me, Francie?
