Information is everywhere, and it just could not be different when comes to makersapaces. To learn  about how Littlebits support learning, I attended a webinar on Creating Stories with littleBits with Kylie Peppler, Brian Pichman, and Allison Vannatta. I highly recommend it if you are trying to understand what pieces of technology to offer people to engage them in creative learning processes. Brian Pichman highlighted why libraries need to evolve and foster collaboration, innovation, and interaction. It`s a must watch to ensure our makerspaces are democratic and help people develop powerful learning skills.
