Storytime has joined the digital age, and incorporating digital media into collections and programming is now an essential part of children’s librarianship. Join PLA and instructor Cen Campbell for this on-demand webinar that tackles this new territory. Cen explores mobile apps and e-books and shares practical techniques for integrating these tools into traditional early literacy programming. Participants will feel empowered to offer high-quality, book-based and educational media recommendations, model healthy media behavior, and effectively communicate with parents on the positive and negative implications of media consumption on very young children.
This archived webinar was originally presented April 17, 2013.
