    Planning for the Future of K–12 Libraries: Multifunctional Learning Commons

    In this Demco-sponsored webcast, Janet Nelson, Demco’s Director of Library Engagement, and Angie Schoeneck, Demco’s Manager of New Business Development, explore how the future of the school library is in creating a dynamic learning commons, anchoring the entire school around knowledge, expression and collaboration, and developing both virtual and physical spaces. Current trends in education require school libraries to evolve from book warehouses to multifunctional learning resource centers in order to support these needs. Throughout the presentation, you will develop an understanding of how furniture and spaces can be designed to create a variety of zones to support multiple learning activities and the needs of the students, staff, parents and the community.

    Seeking innovative middle and high school teachers of all disciplines who want to explore an amazing Alternate Reality Game in and outside of the classroom. The concept is that there is a storyline in the game that students become a part of and they are given challenges (both from The Rez--the Resistance, which is the name of the group leading the charge to rescue all of human history--as well as from the local leaders who are teachers such as yourself.)

    The name of the game is Skabe din Fremtid, which means "Create Your Future" in Danish and seeks to engage students with the following storyline. Machines have begun to take over and have gradually begun to re-write all of recorded human history, replacing human impact with the impact of machines.

    The idea is that the students, or Humarchivists, as they are called in the game are supposed to research and engage in challenges that will help them re-create and re-archive human history (this would work equally well for encouraging students to "re-create" scientific experiments.

    I have done a great deal of work on this building the infrastructure on social media and plan on incorporating local newspapers, radio and television stations as well as the web.

    There is an Edmodo group that I hope you will join to help best plan and implement this novel way of learning. The group is called "Alternative Reality Games in Education" https://edmodo.com/public/alternative-reality... and the group code is: mrs54u

    Hope to see you there.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Mannix
