Teens help create learning lab

Continue reading below

Lynn teens are helping design a digital learning lab at the public library through a partnership between the library and Salem State University. The library last fall was among 12 libraries and museums nationwide selected by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to share in $1.1 million to plan for and design digital learning labs, which are spaces where teenagers can connect with mentors and peers, as well as access new media and traditional materials. The Lynn teens selected to participate in the project are working with mentors from Salem State’s Center for Teaching Innovation to design the lab. In April 2014 they will present the results of their work at a citywide forum. The library plans to use the design in seeking grant money to create the lab.
