The workshop will focus on:
- why the role of teens must shift from consumers of library-driven activities to developers/implementers of library events and co-designers of digitally rich learning experiences;
- how practices designed by Yip, for gathering direct input from teens when designing learning experiences, relate to library practices and how Yip’s “co-design lessons” can be modified for use in library sponsored teen events;
- how, through collaboration between Seattle Public Library’s Rubio and University of Washington iSchool, teens are involved in providing insight and inspiration into what makes successful connected learning environments with digital media;
- why, via tools such as Velasquez’s “matrix of teen participation”, it is vital and possible to make integration of youth voice quantifiable, reportable and an organizational goal
