Teen Tech Week officially starts on Monday! Students are gearing up for the four competitions: book playlist on mixpod.com, book trailer uploaded on youtube.com, library logo design, and website design on jimdo.com
There will also be an internet scavenger hunt all week long.
There are great prizes including 4 ipod shuffles, a digital video camera, a webcam, four sets of headphones, and four i-tunes gift certificates.
Many students have come in to pick up rules/intructions, and entry forms. I can't wait to see what types on entries we will receive (due Friday, March 12). The winners will be announced Monday, March 15. Good luck to all our entrants.
You can find rules and entry forms on this site as well as in the library.
Teen Tech Week
This year, the library is participating in the annual Teen Tech Week, March 7-13, 2010. The 2010 theme — Learn Create Share @ your library — fosters teen creativity and makes the library your physical and virtual place for exploration of the many types of technology available at libraries.
I want the program decisions to be made by students, to better meet your needs and preferences. If you are interested in being on a student advisory board for Teen Tech Week, we will meet during the January activity period. Please come to the library and let me know.
Some programming ideas include:
Competitions for: Computer animation of a book character or setting
(using Blender.org or Scratch)
Website design showcasing the student for employment
or college (using Jimdo.com)
Playlist for a book (like a soundtrack)
(using mixpod.com or project playlist)
Book trailers (like a movie preview) (using youtube)
Video Game Design (possibly using Kodu)
Library Logo Design
And/Or: An online facebook book group
Internet scavenger hunt
