I’ll be speaking at an upcoming tech camp on the topic of apps and iPads in children’s services. There will also be presentations on the Central Library of Rochester’s YOUmedia lab and developing a Minecraft program for teens. If you’re in the Western NY area, I hope you can join us! Here’s a detailed description of the presentations and a link to register:
The Emerging Technologies Committee of the Monroe County Library System would like to invite you to our February Tech Camp – Programming the Digital Way. It will be held on Friday, February 7th from 2pm – 5pm at the Brighton Memorial Library.
This Tech Camp will be entirely dedicated to Children’s and Teen Technology Services.
Apps and eBooks in Storytimes and Library Programs
Tablets have been revolutionizing education, and libraries are close behind! Learn how to easily implement apps and ebooks into the traditional library storytime structure. Exciting and low cost library programs using educational apps and games will also be covered.
Central Library’s YOUmedia
Get a sneak peek at the Central Library’s YOUmedia teen and tween digital lab space. See how teens can use technology for creative self-expression through digital media with video creation, audio production, and digital photography.
Minecraft is a popular new online game that allows players to build and share immense creations such as buildings, structures, and geographic landscapes. It’s the 21st Century’s answer to Legos. Learn how libraries are using Minecraft to connect with children, tweens, and teens, and promote fun collaborative projects using library technology.
We hope that you can join us – please register for this Tech Camp.
