Schools and Libraries Together: Rethinking Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are more libraries in this country than McDonalds. Though, most people think about books when they think about libraries, the goal of libraries has always been about learning and literacy. In this way, libraries and schools have always run on a parallel track, often partnering together, but can we break out of our current patterns of working together and use new tools–incorporating design thinking to rebrand literacy–in order to find more integrated ways to address our shared goals?

Objectives:
1) Explore challenges to old and possibilities for new collaborative models for public libraries and schools.
2) Discuss if and how we can use design thinking to create more transformative partnerships in any collaboration, not solely between schools and libraries
3) Identify some tools–what they look like and how they work–that can lead to more effective collaborative partnerships.
