Parents, teachers, librarians, and students—we all use modern technology on a daily basis. There are so many options for its uses, such as homework, research, social media, and games. The classroom and library have become hubs for technology geared to kids and teens.
In March, YALSA is celebrating their 5th Teen Tech Week. According to their site, "Teen Tech Week is a national initiative aimed at teens, librarians, educators, parents, and other concerned adults that highlights nonprint resources at the library." The 2011 theme is Mix and Mash @ your library, which will focus on "encouraging teens to use library resources to express their creativity by developing their own unique online content and safely sharing it by using online collaborative tools." http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/teentechweek/ttw11/home11.cfm
The books in this month's tech feature focus books focus on technology—its history, its "rules," and its many uses. http://www.childrenslit.com/childrenslit/th_technology.html
