Annual Conference Session

Imagine a world in which you’re not expected to be a technology expert, but you’re able to lead the charge in offering innovative tech programs for youth at your library. Utilizing the Youth Experience (YX) design approach, the presenters will share how they transformed their library’s services to youth by shedding the title of ‘expert’ and stepping into the role of a facilitator. Through real life examples and hands-on activities, participants will demonstrate an increased understanding of YX design approaches, and will learn how to incorporate youth as co-designers and peer mentors in technology-rich library programs.
