Join YALSA for a Twitter Takeover during Teen Tech Week™ 2017

To add to the Teen Tech Week festivities taking place at libraries across the nation, each day during Teen Tech Week, YALSA’s twitter account, @yalsa will be turned over to a different partner who will share out information, news and resources of interest to those working to build digital literacy skills in teens.

The takeover will allow partners to inform and engage YALSA’s 38,000+ Twitter followers about relevant issues from their perspectives, as well as share helpful resources of interest to YALSA’s audience. Topics range from connected learning, makerspaces and making, learning labs, web literacy, digital skills, practical tips for using digital tools, and more.

Participants include:

  • Mon., March 6: Congressional App Challenge – @CongressionalAC
  • Tues., March 7: The LAMP – @thelamp
  • Wed., March 8: Gene Luen Yang (TTW National Spokesperson)– @geneluenyang
  • Thurs., March 9: YALSA’s Teen Tech Week Committee
  • Fri., March 10: ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy – @oitp
