Bumpy, but forward-moving. That is how I would describe the rollout of a remodel to our Library Media Center, which began in mid-January. As the school´s new Media Specialist, my creativity and tech skills reign high, but my Spanish and Nica business skills come in low. Thank goodness for Google translate and a kind head librarian to help with the barriers. Exciting things to come! Stay tuned for developments, it is sure to be a showstopper once rolled out!
What our Media Center is all about
Lincoln has invested in redesigning our traditional library into a Media Center that focuses on providing a space for students´ interactive curricula, collaborative assignments, technology, and media content production classrooms for community engagement. Our remodel includes dividing the library into 5 zones.
The Kidz Zone
The Recording Studio
The MS/HS Zone
A Multipurpose Room
The Multipurpose and MS/HS Zone are simple, yet functional spaces reserved for our older students. They were created primarily for reading, collaboration, and film studies. Students can book the multipurpose room for private use to practice presentations, study groups, and the like.
The Kidz Zone was designed to spark imagination and joy for reading for our pre-k and elementary students. And finally, the Makerspace Zone includes a wide array of STEM projects that ignite creativity and problem-solving skills.
The main mission of Lincoln International Academy (LIA) is to foster a lifelong joy and love for reading. It also serves to create a student-centered library media center which provides a safe and, nurturing environment in which students can successfully seek information and ideas for their educational, informational, and recreational needs. The library seeks to promote an appreciation of literature enabling students to interpret meaning from various forms of texts literature as they become lifelong readers and learners.
The library seeks to ensure that our students acquire the necessary information literacy skills they will need to become productive learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the lead successful meaningful lives in the 21st century. This mission recognizes the essential role of the school library program in the educational process as students reach their full potential.
