“Salem State University and Lynn Library Collaborate on Digital Learning Lab”
Salem State University and the Lynn Library are collaborating on a project that aims to empower teens.
The 18-month project will focus on designing a digital learning lab in the middle of the Lynn Library to encourage a set of principles: hanging out, messing around and geeking out (HOMAGO).
Working with the library, Salem State’s Center for Teaching Innovation (CTI) devised a project plan that puts the entire design of the lab in the hands of the teens.
More than just a learning exercise, the grant-funded project will result in actual change at the Lynn Public Library for all area teens.
According to Marc Boots-Ebenfield, director of the Center for Teaching Innovation, the “transformational” project will cost upwards of $250,000 once completed.
