2014 Spring Workshop

"Early Literacy in the Digital Age"

Featuring:

Cen Campbell Harriet Ziefert
Cen Campbell
Founder & Editor-in-Chief of
LittleeLit.com
Harriet Ziefert
Children's Author and Publisher of
Blue Apple Books

We will be looking at the form and content of Storytime in the age of Smartphones, iPads, and other new media and raising the following questions:

How do these devices extend and enhance the already dynamic storytime experience and help nurture a love of reading in our young readers?
How do early literacy practioners effectively select, use, itegrate, and evaluate technology and interactive media tools in intentional and developmentally appropriate ways?
What role do publishers, authors, and illustrators play in the creation of new media for children?

To those who create books for and share them with young people, this workshop offers attendees a venue for partnership building and resource sharing in this transformative time in which the technologies impact library and literacy practices.
