Selecting Apps for iPads in the Children’s Department SBEC logo

Register

This webinar will introduce selection criteria, review sources, and outstanding early literacy and early math and science Apps for iPads, including Spanish and multi-lingual Apps.

Today’s children are growing up surrounded by technology and using tablets comes naturally to them. Many libraries provide iPads and Apps in their children’s departments and incorporate Apps into their storytimes to help children develop early literacy, math, science, and technology skills. Apps provide valuable early learning experiences and introduce concepts and technology in a developmentally appropriate manner. Our nation is committed to early learning as a national priority essential to our economic and civic future. Libraries play a significant role in providing early learning experiences that build a child’s brain, fuel a love of learning, and contribute to success in learning to read, in school, and in life.

Join Christine McNew, independent library consultant and children's services expert, for this engaging webinar. More info...
