Abstract:This poster will introduce a key educational collaborative project in libraries and museums between the U.S. MacArthur Foundation, the Institute for Museum and Library Services, the Urban Libraries Council, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, the Chicago Public Library, and the Digital Youth Network. Using this project, the authors will share how research on how the use of technology by digital youth has influenced practice in this collaborative venture; demonstrate how the basic research has led to a broad-based understanding of connected learning that breaks down barriers for youth in a networked world; validate the presence of information-provision persons in library learning labs; and explore what this means from a university perspective for the education of 21[st] century librarians working with youth.
