As I’m thinking about redesigning the Barrow Media Center for our new school, I’m trying to periodically document through pictures and videos how the media center is currently being used. I’m trying to think about what is working in our space, what’s not working, and what could be happening. Here’s a look at the video that I captured today when approximately 100 students were in the media center at the same time.
After seeing a video posted by Buffy Hamilton showing the buzz of energy as multiple classes worked simultaneously in the library, I decided to take a moment to capture a snapshot of the Barrow Media Center. In this video clip, you will see simultaneous classes doing very separate things. Our space and collaboration allow for multiple lessons to happen at different times taught by the media specialist, teachers, and paraprofessionals. While all of this learning is taking place, students are also still able to come to the library to checkout books by themselves.
