Supporting Connected Learning for Youth in Libraries with the ConnectedLib Toolkit

Join us to learn about connected learning programs and services for youth, and how the ConnectedLib Toolkit can help you build the skills you need to successfully implement them.

The connected learning educational framework is an approach to creating learning experiences driven by teen interests and supported by their peer relationships. The ConnectedLib Toolkit is a free resource aimed at building library staff capacity to engage and promote connected learning and 21st century skills among today’s digital youth. The Toolkit was created by researchers at the University of Washington and University of Maryland in partnership with public libraries.

This session will introduce the connected learning framework, orient you to the Toolkit’s content and features, and discuss how it can be customized for your community’s needs. Learn more about connected learning and how you can use the Toolkit to create programming that engages teens in learning that aligns with their goals.

Presented by: Dr. Katie Davis, Associate Professor, University of Washington Information School, Adjunct Associate Professor, UW College of Education, and founding member and Co-Director, UW Digital Youth Lab; and Dr. Mega Subramaniam, Associate Professor, College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland, and founding member and Co-Director of the UMD Youth eXperience (YX) Lab
