Wednesday, November 19

What's the best way to bring technology into a storytime? How do you evaluate apps for early literacy?

Everyday there are new apps and technologies being made available to young children. Libraries are integrating technology into children’s programming, including storytimes and other early literacy services. When used correctly, technology can be used to increase early literacy skills in young children.

This free webinar<https://cc.readytalk.com/r/d3l1li1d80qd&eom> will share best practices, resources, and ideas to help you easily and effectively bring technology to your library’s early literacy programming. We will hear from two guests with expertise in early literacy and childhood education.

  *   Tanya Smith will share practical, research-based recommendations published by the Fred Rogers Center and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
  *   Lori Crocker (Douglas County Libraries, CO) will share practical examples of how to bring technology into library storytimes.
  *   Learn about free online resources like LittleeLit.com and Reading Eggs.
This webinar will be recorded and archived on the TechSoup for Libraries website<http://www.techsoupforlibraries.org/events/archive>. Please register to receive an email notification when the archive is available.
