Sunday Afternoon Workshop

Title: Teen Library Users: Engaging the Next Generation

Planned and moderated by Stephen Abram

There are a ton of great ideas out there using new technologies and great content to attract and retain
teen users in the library. This session will show how guitars, video, 3D printing, laser tag, and more can
be tied to programs and library use to engage teens and attract them to the library. And, just as
importantly, how to tie this to their needs for homework help, social needs, and reading. The team of
presenters is comprised of on the ground, in the field, teen librarians who will share their innovations
and demonstrate what works and doesn’t work. We hope to show games, 3D printers, iPhone apps,
Laser Tag and more. This will be exciting and dynamic, join us!



A TRACK?

Two or three session ideas I’ll write up if you schedule them

    1. Brian Pichman will bring his laser tag operation is you want to try a night program on that…!
    2. Brian Pichman can do a session on teen spaces and I could have Gretchen Caserotti and others
       talk about combining technology and programming at Darien.

Homework: Breaking the Model for 21st Century Learners

Speaker: Stephen Abram, VP Gale Cengage Learning

And I hope Terri Fredericka at InfOhio

There are three challenges for public libraries in this century:

        a. Understanding the new curriculum, the common core and output based education
        b. Aligning public library services, program and training with the needs of the new teen
        c. Building relationships with schools, boards and teachers and defining what public libraries
           can offer.

Stephen Abram will outline what has happened in the education field in North America in the past ten
years and trends in K-12 education. He will demonstrate how Google Education, subscription products
and textbooks are changing to address these needs and the opportunities for public libraries. He will
also show innovative strategies to work with teachers and school boards.
Trends in Teen Users and Technology: A Dynamic Panel

Moderated by Stephen Abram

A panel of teen librarians is dynamically interviewed about their ideas and innovations in working with
and successfully attracting teen users to the public library. Come hear their great experiments, pilots
and programs using things as simple as guitars, simple gaming nights, or as advanced as laser tag, mobile
apps, and more. The session will be interview style, not talking heads and there will be opportunity for
audience involvement.



The ones you sent me look great too. If you want to combine them into a Young Adults and the Internet
Track…?
