The Mozilla Hive Learning Network is a city-by-city model of bringing as many of the learning activities as possible together so all the varied groups (libraries, community centres, schools, hack/maker spaces, independent schools and instructors) know that the others exist and what they are doing, and so that learners can map their own pathways through it. Traditionally it has focused on digital learning and youth 12-18, but in the Vancouver branch we are trying to bridge the digital and physical worlds, and open to learners of all ages.  This session will be about discussing how to best involve people in their own learning, bridge different groups, whether we can scale what are often very personal experiences so that learners world-wide can participate, and the very central role libraries are playing.  In parallel to this, the Maker Foundation has been sponsoring Maker Education meet-ups, bringing librarians, educators, administrators, community centre organizers, makers, parents, and kids together to discuss how to get tools into kids hands to empower them to take charge of their own educations and engage with the world around them.
