This segment expands the role of library services and spaces in alternative K-12 curriculum. Using STEAM as a model for our discussion, we will review learning styles and how to plan libraries to complement pedagogy. Prior to taking the course you should review student learning styles and multiple intelligence theory. To incorporate all learners into our discussions on space we will look beyond STEM to STEAM including art and design into the process as well. We will investigate a future school library influenced by cognitive research, learning styles and pedagogy. The primary goal in the course is to give educators alternative concepts for educational space design that focuses on pedagogy and the individual learner.
