Kids, tweens, teens and their parents are increasingly interested in 
computer programming education, and they are looking to public and 
school libraries as a host for the informal learning process that is 
most effective for learning to code. This webinar will share lessons 
learned through youth coding programs at libraries all over the U.S. We 
will discuss tools and technologies, strategies for promoting and 
running the program, and recommendations for additional resources. An 
excellent webinar for youth and teen services librarians, staff, 
volunteers and general public with an interest in tween/teen/adult services.

Takeaways

  * Inspire attendees about kids and coding, and convince them that the
    library is key to the effort.
  * Provide the tools, resources and information necessary for attendees
    to launch a computer coding program at their library.
  * Cultivate a community of coding program facilitators that can share
    ideas and experiences in order to improve over time.

Presenters:

Kelly Smith spent hundreds of hours volunteering at the local public 
library before realizing that kids beyond Mesa, Arizona could benefit 
from an intro to computer programming. With a fellow volunteer, he 
founded Prenda – a learning technology company with the vision of 
millions of kids learning to code at libraries all over the country. By 
day, he designs products for a California technology company. Kelly has 
been hooked on computer programming since his days as a graduate student 
at MIT.

Crystle Martin is a postdoctoral research scholar at the Digital Media 
and Learning Research Hub at the University of California, Irvine. She 
explores youth and connected learning in online and library settings and 
is currently researching implementation of Scratch in underserved 
community libraries, to explore new pathways to STEM interests for 
youth. Her 2014 book, titled “Voyage Across a Constellation of 
Information: Information Literacy in Interest-Driven 
Learning Communities,” reveals new models for understanding information 
literacy in the 21st century through a study of information practices 
among dedicated players of World of Warcraft. Crystle holds a PhD in 
Curriculum & Instruction specializing in Digital Media, with a minor in 
Library and Information Studies from the University of 
Wisconsin–Madison; serves on the Board of Directors for the Young Adult 
Library Services Association; and holds an MLIS from Wayne State 
University in Detroit, MI.

Justin Hoenke is a human being who has worked in youth services all over 
the United States and is currently the Executive Director of the Benson 
Memorial Library in Titusville, Pennsylvania. Before that, he was 
Coordinator of Teen Services at the Chattanooga Public Library in 
Chattanooga, TN where Justin created The 2nd Floor, a 14,000 square foot 
space for ages 0-18 into a destination that brings together learning, 
fun, the act of creating and making, and library service. Justin is a 
member of the 2010 American Library Association Emerging Leaders class 
and was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2013. His 
professional interests include public libraries as community centers, 
working with kids, tweens, and teens, library management, video games, 
and creative spaces. Follow Justin on Twitter at @justinlibrarian and
