March 10 through 16 is Teen Tech Week! Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by YALSA. It encourages teens to be competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through libraries such as DVDs, databases, audiobooks, and videogames. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use libraries’ nonprint resources for education and recreation and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology.
I was thinking about how teens use social media to connect and collaborate, and my mind immediately jumped to Polyvore. A haven for fashionistas, Polyvore is a giant style community in which users can create virtual collages to showcase their sartorial savvy.
So, what if some of my favorite YA characters were on Polyvore? What kind of collages would they put together in their spare time? I mean, when they’re not fighting for their life or kissing cute boys, of course. Here are a few of my ideas.
