Summer coming to an end and autumn getting closer. 🙁
But hang on, there are a couple of things to look forward to 🙂
Check this out:
October 13: “Hack the library!” (Swe: Hacka bibblan!)
A collaborative event at Skaparbibblan (The Maker Library) in Vaggeryd. There we’ll share great ideas for making and invent ideas for library transformation. Going to be great fun! I will pack my suitcase with some makerboxes and hopefully, by then, I will have moulded some ideas on how making and integrity can be combined. Digital integrity, cryptology and surveillence issues are indeed hot topics for all of us in the library business to discuss and prototype around. And it doesn’t have to be boring, on the contrary! At least that’s my starting point…
November 1: “This is how it works – 2016” (Swe: Så funkar det – 2016)
A training day for school development and digitization taking place at Messingen in Upplands Väsby, north of Stockholm. I will be hanging out at the “makerspace corner” with a bunch of makerboxes for participants to tinker with. I will probably also give some kind of presentation on how tinkering, making and hacking can be exciting and inclusive approaches to the new digital literacies we all need to deal with in order to cope with the growing global library of today: the knowledge machine we call the web.
Both events are open for all but, obviously, Hack the library will be most interesting for library geeks and “This is how it works” will probably be most appealing for teachers and other pedagogues.
