2008 Technology Summit: Digital Youth Wired for Action

Come visit me in Charlotte next month at the 2008 Technology Summit: Digital Youth Wired for Action

The 2008 Technology Summit “Digital Youth Wired for Action” is a high-impact conference designed to inspire new learning and creativity in library staff, educators and others from around the region interested in youth development and learning. The day will be filled with practical tips and methods to help integrate new technologies into the programs and services you offer to children and teens.

The event’s keynote speaker will be Anastasia Goodstein. Goodstein is the author of Totally Wired: what teens and tweens are really doing online. Her blog, YPulse, is a leading media, technology and youth development information source, and School Library Journal recently published Goodstein’s article What Would Madison Avenue Do? Marketing to Teens.

Tickets to this exciting event are just $20 per person. Purchase tickets online through the library’s partnering agency, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, or call 704-973-2828. (Note: a $5 handling fee will be added to all Internet and telephone orders.)
