All this month,  YALSA and ConnectedLearningTV has hosted a series of conversations around teens and the future of school & public libraries, part of the year-long National Forum on Libraries and Teens.  

The background:

YALSA President H. Jack Martin and Crystle Martin, Postdoctoral Researcher for the Connected Learning Research Network, have been moderators the free virtual chats, which will look at the roles social media and teens play in the future of public and school libraries. Crystle and Jack will facilitate discussions with Renee Hobbs, Chris Shoemaker, Wendy Stephens, Joyce Valenza and many more about the challenges surrounding leveraging social media in library programs. YALSA members are invited to participate and to share what has or has not been working in their own libraries. Participants will explore best practices from across the globe to implement in their library.

I’ve been listening in for the past three weeks.  

This coming Tuesday, May 28 at 1:00 PM Eastern, Buffy Hamilton and I have the opportunity to participate on the panel: Teens and the Future of Libraries: Sharing Best Practices

Please help me prepare to discuss and represent best practice relating to both school and public libraries.   

What would you want the research and the edtech worlds to know about what’s going right relating to teens, tech, social media and our own spaces and practices both physical and virtual?

Leave your best ideas, along with links  in Comments or email me at joycevalenza@gmail.com

You are welcome to participate in real time, and ask questions on Livestream, watch live on the Connected Learning Google+ Page, and contribute to the #futureoflibraries conversation on Twitter.

The very active, idea-rich YALSAblog is also hosting conversations about the webinars. See Linda Braun’s recent post.

Each virtual chat has been (or will be) archived.
