Teen Tech Week for Teens, Educators and Parents

teentechweek Teen Tech Week for Teens, Educators and Parents

Librarians want you to know that libraries are so much more than books. YALSA (Young Adult Librarian Services Association) created Teen Tech Week to ensure that teens become competent and ethical users of technologies and learn about technology resources available at their libraries. This year Teen Tech Week will run from March 10 – 16.

The theme of this year’s Teen Tech Week will be to showcase all of the technology that libraries have to offer. Throughout the week libraries will hold free workshops on various digital literacy skills, including navigating the Internet, social networking and using eReader devices. Librarians will work with teens to create their own web content.

YALSA has created a wonderful Teen Tech Week website full of resources for librarians and educators. The website is also a place to share ideas and resources.

I highly recommend that parents encourage their teenagers to attend Teen Tech Week events. Both public and school libraries will be participating. Take advantage of everything that your library has to offer. It is free and librarians are some of the most educated and helpful individuals you will find anywhere.
