Trends: Get up to Speed on Connected Learning
Check out the free webinar archive, case studies and personal stories for information about connected learning at http://connectedlearning.tv/.  Connected learning is a concept that’s gaining widespread popularity among policy makers, funders, educators and those engaged in youth development.  Its focus is on informal learning that goes on outside of the school day.  Libraries have always been a place that supports learning, so getting engaged in the connected learning movement makes perfect sense.

Virtual Town Hall on Libraries and Teens
As part of a year-long grant funded effort to bring together key stakeholders from the areas of libraries, education, technology, adolescent development and the for-profit and nonprofit sectors to explore the world of young adults and library services to this population, YALSA is hosting a virtual town hall on Tues. March 19th from 2-3pm, eastern.  Any interested person is welcome to attend.  At the conclusion of the grant project, YALSA will produce a report which will provide direction on how libraries need to adapt and potentially change to better meet the needs of 21st century teens.  Grant funding is generously provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  To learn more, visit www.ala.org/yaforum<http://www.ala.org/yaforum>, or search #yalsaforum on Twitter.
