2013 Winner(s)

Rachel M. Magee

Doctoral student at iSchool at Drexel’s program in Information Studies

Magee will use multiple methods to help develop a deeper understanding of teens’ information behaviors and practices and will include geographical, cultural and socio-economic diversity. This research addresses teens’ use of technology in every day settings. Much research into the ways youth interact with information and technology focuses on academic settings, leaving everyday settings less explored.
