Connecting Technology, Child Development and Early Literacy

April 9, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

 

CMYK-2stack-bigAdvances in technology are rapidly transforming how we communicate and learn. This is also true for early literacy efforts. Chip Donohue, Ph.D., a nationally recognized on technology use in early childhood education, will highlight some current research findings, best practices and big ideas on this topic. Educators and parents will get valuable guidance on how technology can promote healthy child development, early learning and early literacy. Donohue is a senior fellow at the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media and director of the TEC Center at the Erickson Institue, a graduate school for child development. He is also the editor of the new book “Technology and Digital Media in the Early Years.” This presentation is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
