Awaken the Media Guru in You!
May 3, 2016, 9:00am-3:00pm
Location: Swain Business Center
There are so many great trends happening in media centers today, but it can sometimes be intimidating to take the leap. Makerspace, STEM, STEAM - what does it all mean for media centers? Let's spend the day exploring the amazing world of creativity and creation that can make our media spaces the true core of our schools. Be sure to be ready for adventure by bringing a laptop (if you have a tablet and a smartphone, bring those too).
