Today’s teenagers can access an incredible amount of information, games, and images with a click of the mouse, yet young adults may not be exposed to some of the best websites for their age group. In this workshop, you'll enter the virtual worlds that teens are discovering on the World Wide Web. Find out why they appeal to teens, and investigate how libraries across the country are starting to integrate the Internet into their service to teens, both inside and outside of the library.

The Internet offers many captivating sites that both entertain and educate. Linda Braun author of Introducing the Internet to Young Learners : Ready-To-Go Activities and Lesson Plans will take you to some of the best sites for young adults and give you some innovative ideas on how to attract teens to these sites. You’ll also get some great tips on how to incorporate websites and Internet resources into young adult library programs and services.

This workshop is a CAMLS/NOLA co-sponsored event.
