    • KIDS ANDCOMPUTERS:PROGRAMS FORTWEENSSara M. Bryce, La Crosse Public Library
    • “Millennial” generation
    • Things LPL kids use theInternet for: Watching movies on streaming sites (youtube.com) Role-playing games (bgames.com, LEGO.com) Games where you make things (Barbie.com) Facebook Chat
    • Surprising questions from kids8-12  How do you make the squiggly sign in emails?  This site asked me for my username and password. What is it?  I want to go to LEGO.com but I don’t know how to spell it.  What do you mean, “Google it?”

    • “Is this all they’ll be doing?”
    • “Why aren’t they DOINGanything?” “As we speak, your child is:  honing problem solving skills by navigating the games  building social skills by playing with a partner  practicing a variety of subjects in a non- classroom scenario  fostering self-efficacy You’re welcome.”

    • Final thought The informal, exciting half of kids education occurs “after school.” This is the place where 21st century students learn about their world and prepare themselves for their 21st century lives. --Marc Prensky, education and technology innovator We’re the “after school”! Yaaaay, us!
