Creating a Digital Media Space for Today’s Teens Workshop
A two-part workshop running 60 minutes each session on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific and Wednesday, August 16, 2017 2017 at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific
In the age of iPads, YouTube, and instant information sharing, an ordinary “computer lab” doesn’t draw teens into the library the way it used to. To get teens more active in the library and enthusiastic about library programs and services, a Digital Media Space can be the draw—a place that teens can go to record videos, use social media, create projects, and engage with the community and their peers on their own terms. Digital media expert Corey Wittig knows what it takes to build an effective, popular lab, and he’ll share his knowledge with you in this comprehensive, two-part workshop.
- Steps for getting started, including planning and getting buy-in from library stakeholders
- Budgeting and allocation
- Scheduling staff time efficiently
- Ways to get funding through grants and community partnerships
