Libraries striving for innovative ways to meet customers’ learning needs can struggle to be everything to all people, especially in the world of ever changing technology. How do we ensure that our investments in equipment are relevant, responsible and sustainable? How do we plan so that technology supports the library’s mission as community learning center rather than distracts precious staff time or diverts limited funds from more impactful methods? Makerspaces, recording studios, and self-publishing in the library all come from the same desire to engage customers in participatory, active learning. The Literacy and Learning Division of Cuyahoga County Public Library has had growing success using outcome-based, backwards design processes to select technology that supports Connected Learning for youth and Lifelong Learning for all.
