Teen Tech Week is when libraries make the time to showcase all of the great digital resources and services that are available to help teens succeed in school and prepare for college and 21st century careers.
Celebrate the next Teen Tech Week with the theme "Be the Source of Change," March 5-11, 2017.
This year's theme encourages teens to take advantage of all the great digital resources offered through the library to make a positive change in their life and community.
The Innovation Collaborative is collecting innovative lessons, units or projects from K-12 teachers and librarians as part of the first national effort to develop a framework for effective practices at the intersections of arts, sciences and humanities. The resulting matrix will include validated effective teaching practices that are often referred to as STEAM. These will then be tested in classrooms and used to develop educational materials. Submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners, and those with the top entries will be named Innovation Fellows. Fellows will become the Collaborative’s national models, will receive a stipend, and also will have the opportunity to contribute to future project initiatives.
Submission deadline is May 31, 2016. For more information on the Collaborative, the current research and the form to submit, please visit the…Continue
