SIE 3: Playing around: Informing, including, and inspiring youth-centered information researchers
Playing around: Informing, including, and inspiring youth-centered information researchers
This interactive session will bring together youth information scholars, graduate students who study youth and information, and practitioners who work with youth in a variety of information environments for a creative ideas exchange about youth-centered information research writ large. It will address methods for negotiating access to youth research participants, ideas for navigating the wild world of IRB, other institutional policies, and community-wide directions in information research both with youth and with the adult intermediaries who serve them. Ideas exchange will comprise creative interaction methods, including verbal, tactile, and visual activities that can be used with youth in youth-centered research projects or with students in academic settings, from preschool to graduate school. Above all, this session will serve to uncover research and scholarship synergies among iConference participants with interests in young people’s interaction with information.
