NCLD Youth Workshop Train the Trainer (T3) Meaningful Connections with Teens

December 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

T3 is a YALSA training series that is supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  The trainings focus on three areas:  Connected Learning, Computational Thinking, and Ages in Stages.  PA has two trainers- Sara Huff (William Jeanes Memorial Library in Lafayette Hill) and Nicole Husbands (Indian Valley Public Library in Telford).  They will be facilitating two training sessions on December 19th. Computational Thinking and Connected Learning.

Connected Learning
This workshop introduces participants to the core concepts of Connected Learning.  Participants explore the principles of Connected Learning and how to connect Connected Learning theory to practice.

Workshop Outcomes- participants will be able to:

  • Understand the philosophy of Connected Learning as it relates to educational and career opportunities
  • Explore the principles of Connected Learning
  • Think about how to operationalize Connected Learning theory into practice

Computational Thinking
One way to start thinking about what computational thinking is all about is to take part in an activity that connects library staff to an actual project that teens might work on. In this session participants get hands-on experience and a chance to discuss what computational thinking is and how it can be integrated into teen activities.

Workshop Outcomes- participants will be able to:

  • Articulate core concepts of computational thinking
  • Begin designing activities for and with teens that connect to CT
  • Understand the value of integrating CT into activities for and with teens

Connect CT to pre-existing library activities and services
