The organizers of this workshop are interested in building a research community among scholars interested in the intersection of information, young people, and technology. Specifically, we are interested in addressing questions such as:
• What role can iSchools play in exploring relationships between information, young people, and technology?
• What methods are best for studying young people’s digital practices around reading / writing / gaming, and their effects on how young people participate/engage?
• Which theoretical frameworks support this work?
• How do privacy issues complicate both how young people participate, and how we, as a scholarly community, study them?
While participants are not required to submit, organizers will put out a call for 500-word abstracts due January 15th, 2019. As an outcome of this workshop, organizers plan a special edition of a journal. Abstract authors may be asked to write full papers, which can be included in such journal.
