Summary

For information and technology, youth lead in defining the present and driving the future. Since early 2000 there has been an increasing interest across ASIST subfields in better understanding how youth engage with information and technology in formal and informal settings and how they can be better supported. This panel continues dialogue in the digital youth research and design community about work in-progress, upcoming events, collaboration opportunities and more. The session begins with an overview of the 2014 Digital Youth iLab held in Seattle and focuses on the trajectory of work pertaining to digital youth, its significance and the future of research, design, policy and practice.
