How libraries can create peer learning environments to support new literacies development

What do web literacy, data literacy, mobile literacy, and computational thinking have in common? They are all digital skills people need to thrive in today’s world. And, they all are being learned in engaging, interactive, peer-to-peer formats.

We invite people to learn about these different skills and learning programs, and participate in group exercises designed to explore ways libraries can introduce such programs. The session features examples from libraries that have hosted: Mozilla Clubs (in-person peer-supported learning to teach, protect and build the open web), Learning Circles (peer-led study groups for learners who want to take online courses together and in-person developed by P2PU), mobile literacy (learning and engaging the internet for smartphone centric users), and Library Kids Team (co-designing new technologies and learning activities for children, with children, developed at the University of Washington Information School).
