Teens and Technology

April 6th, 2010

Alliance Library System and TAP Information Services are pleased to announce the third in a dynamic monthly series of online workshops librarians can enjoy right at their desktops on hot topics.  The latest conference on Teens and Technology is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13.  Kelly Czarnecki from the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County is the keynote speaker.  She will talk about “A Great Fit: Teens, Technology and Libraries!”  Kelly’s talk will take a look at how libraries throughout the country are engaging teens with technology and why. Then she will address ways (low budget!) that libraries can integrate more technology programs and services for teens in their library and community and convince their administrators along the way.

Other speakers for this inspiring  day-long conference include:

  • Dodie Ownes, Editor of SLJTeen on “Teens and Technology”
  • Marianne Mancusi, Author of Gamer Girl
  • Beth Gallaway, Trainer/Consultant on “Jumping on the Gaming Bandwagon: Advocacy, Best Practices and Current Trends”
  • Angie Green, Alliance Library System, “Digital Literacy”
  • Cynthia Hart, Virginia Beach Public Library, “Geeking Out @ the Library”
  • Beth Gallaway, “Web 2.wh0a: Trendy Tech to Use with Teens”
