More Than Fun and Games! Digital Technologies and Children’s Learning

Friday, Nov. 14, 20143–4 p.m. EST

The National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning

NCQTL is pleased to present Teacher Time, the webinar for Head Start teachers. Each month, Kristin Ainslie and Dawn Williams consult, learn from, and talk with a special guest, a Head Start teacher, or researcher in the field about the joys and challenges of teaching young children.

Children are fascinated with digital technology and interactive media. But how can teachers use these hands-on, interactive tools to provide more ways for children to learn and create? Join us Friday, Nov. 14, 2014 at 3 p.m. EST for More Than Fun and Games! Digital Technologies and Children’s Learning. We’ll explore safe and fun! ways to use technology in the classroom.

We will look at what research and recommended practices tell us about using digital technologies with young children. Come away with ideas you can use to impact children’s development and imagination through digital storytelling, video recording and playback, and assistive technology.

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Why it’s important to build technological fluency
  • How you can expand young children’s access to new content with interactive technology
  • How technology offers hands-on, engaging, and appropriate additions to the classroom curriculum
