We are looking forward to a new and exciting year!
 
The Panorama school libraries support a culture of literacy and learning.  Skills and interests in a variety of literacies, including information literacy and technology literacy, are taught and supported along with critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity and digital citizenship.   
 
Students will
  • have access to a wide range of quality print and digital resources
  • enhance their learning in all areas with the support of technology integration
  • be inspired to own their learning and deepen their thinking with hands-on opportunities in the Makerspace
 
 
 

Panorama Elementary Makerspace!

 

The elementary library was the recipient of a Making STEM Connections award which has allowed us to create a Makerspace for the students. Our Makerspace is a place where students have access to various tools, equipment, and materials that can be used to create, build, and tinker.  Students will be able to learn everything from how to sew, fuse plastic, code, work with circuits, craft, and use power tools. The Makerspace fits well with the library curriculum by enforcing 21st century skills of creating, communicating, collaborating, and critical thinking. In addition, it  provides cross-curricular connections by supporting STEM -  the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.  

Students are also learning the importance of safety with the 3 C’s - Caution and Communication when they are unfamiliar with an item, which in time builds Confidence.  These concepts are reinforced whenever students are in the Makerspace.
