School Library System: Makerspace Items

Instructions

Welcome to the BOCES kit lending library! We have two services that loan kits to teachers and librarians. Read on for information about both of these and what is available to you.

**See the bottom of this page for instructions on how to book items.**

Model Schools Information

The Model Schools service provides districts with technology integration support. Model Schools provides professional development. Workshops can be found in the Monroe One My Learning Plan.

This service also lends various instructional technology tools for use by educators in the library or in the classroom.

For help with these items, please contact Doreen Pietrantoni at Doreen_Pietrantoni@BOCES.monroe.edu or Parker Ormerod at Parker_Ormerod@BOCES.monroe.edu.

​All public school districts in the Monroe One BOCES region participate in the Model Schools service. 

We Buy It, You Try It

The following kits are provided to librarians through the School Library System for research and development purposes. These items may require training prior to borrowing. We encourage you to borrow these kits and provide feedback to us. This program is provided to you so that you can try out new things before purchasing them for your library. We are happy to lend them when not in use for R&D purposes.

If you are a teacher and you want to borrow an item in this group, please speak with your school librarian about collaborating on a project.
