Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation STEAM Lending Library Training

December 7, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Event DescriptionThis workshop is the requisite training for teachers to become registered borrowers of the STEAM Lending Library and has been designed to provide participants a high-level understanding of everything available in the Library while developing a deeper expertise around 1-2 select technologies. Participants will be encouraged to think critically about technology integration, reflecting both on value-add and potential obstacles to instruction.  Lastly, participants will learn how to navigate the Lending Library portal to reserve items virtually.

BackgroundThrough the generosity of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation (PPF) and the Citrone Family, the Allegheny Intermediate Unit has established a STEAM Lending Library, the first of its kind in the nation. The PPF STEAM Lending Library was in response to educators who expressed a desire to use newer technologies with students but who often lacked the awareness, knowledge and/or financial means to move forward.  Teachers in AIU districts are free to borrow classroom sets of resources at no cost.

While registration is open to all, currently only the 42 AIU “Member Districts” may borrow supplies.

Note: Through the generous support of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, the STEAM Lending Library will expand during the 2017-2018 school year to include new items, with an emphasis on middle and high school.  These new offerings will be available for the December lending period. Those who have previously attended a Lending Library training and are registered borrowers need not attend again.
