It is my goal to implement the maker movement across all campus libraries in my district after experiencing the impact this movement has had on the students at my own campus, Huntsville Intermediate School (HIS). You can view my literature review regarding the research behind this movement along with the proposal letter and the rest of this disruptive innovation plan here.
Phase 1: Recruitment and Planning
Meet with other Innovative Learning Specialists (ILS) and Director of technology at our next ILS meeting on May 11, 2018 to pitch the maker movement at HIS library.
Share the letter of proposal, literature review and call to action video.
Tour HIS campus makerspaces.
Send proposal letter to campus principals.
Phase 2: Implementation
September 2019 - May 2020
Each campus ILS opens up their makerspaces to students according to the plan set up with their campus principal.
During bi-monthly ILS meetings, discuss how makerspaces are going and resolve any problems that may arise.
Rotate makerspaces as needed.
Meet with teachers frequently and students to discuss the makerspaces and what they want to see.
Phase 3: Assessment of Outcomes
During end of year ILS meeting after school is over, discuss the impact makerspaces has had on our students.
Plan how to maintain and elaborate on these makerspaces for the next year.
