Designing for Youth Across the Gulf:  Fishbowl on How Today's Methods, Theory and Findings can Support Tomorrow's Designs

Karen Fisher, Eliza Dresang, Ann Bishop and Ricardo Gomez

ASIST 2011 Annual Meeting
New Orleans, LA, October 9-12, 2011


Summary

The purpose of this panel is to promote an interactive discussion around the types of design opportunities that might be inspired by current research around the information behavior of youth. The session will begin with opening remarks by four researchers, who will share how key elements from their research have direct implications for the design of information technology, policy, services, or pedagogy (6-7 mins each). In the remaining hour, a fishbowl technique will be used to facilitate an interactive discussion amongst all attendees. The fishbowl format is designed to enable the greatest number of people to participate. We have had tremendous success with this method at a number of events, ranging from 25 to 200 people.
