Have you been reading for the past year or so on the YALSAblog about connected learning and libraries?
Have you wondered, how the heck can I integrate connected learning into my library’s teen program of service?
Have you thought, I just can’t make connected learning work in my library?
Did you answer “yes” to any of those questions?
If so, then the ALA Annual YALSA President’s Program on Monday, June 30, from 1-3 PM at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Rooms N255/257 is the program you don’t want to miss. At this program you will:
- Hear Crystle Martin, YALSAblog Manager and postdoctoral research fellow for the Connected Learning Research Network at the Digital Media and Learning Hub at University of California-Irvine, talk about what connected learning is and how libraries working with teens can make it work in their libraries.
- Have a chance to talk with connected learning coaches who will help you figure out the best way to bring connected learning into your setting.
- Get a chance to hear from other library staff working with teens about what they are doing when it comes to connected learning, and brainstorm with them how best to make it work for the teens in your community.
- Learn that you probably don’t have to make that many changes in what you already do in order to start on the road of providing connected learning experiences for youth.
In other words, don’t miss this program!
