VR MakerSpaces

We will discuss the importance of the MakerSpace concept, the challenges and limitations of creating a large MakerSpace with many kinds of tools, and how such a space can be replicated as a VR experience in libraries. A developer will showcase his still-in-development VR MakerSpace concept, which will have been beta-tested in two Maryland public libraries, and a librarian will discuss how developer-library partnerships benefit everyone involved. The conversation will also touch on the importance of adding context to education, and how libraries can be among the first “Holodecks” of our world to achieve this.
