Bill Bass and Parkway Innovation Team recognized by U.S. Department of Education

3/30/2017 -- Congratulations Bill Bass and the Parkway Innovation team for being recognized on a national level for their work on mobile makerspaces. Mobile makerspaces has been highlighted as a best practice in the 2017 U.S. Department of Education's National Education Technology Plan. 

 

The project has facilitated increased collaboration between librarians and teachers in schools. It positions librarians as technology leaders and instructional partners working with teachers to design curricular connections. This movement gives schools an opportunity to experiment with new technologies and prototype their own spaces before making investments in tools or space redesign.
