This week in the course we are talking about creation and participation technologies. Things like Wikis, Tagging, Blogs, RSS, and Podcasts. One thing I was just thinking about in relation to these technologies is how wonderful it would be if librarians in different communities used the technology to bring teens together. Perhaps a group of teens from distant communities could create a wiki together on a topic of interest. Or maybe teens could interview each other for a series of podcasts on teens and libraries. I’ve been thinking a lot about the implications of these technologies in teen lives in particular. But, it’s time to also think about how libraries can connect teens around the country through these technologies.
