TEC Center FREE WEBINAR: Connecting Research to Practice with the Fred Rogers Center
November 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
In this webinar, Dr. Katie Paciga will join TEC Center’s Director and Senior Fred Roger’s Center Fellow, Dr. Chip Donohue to present the results of a recent research synthesis that sought to advance the vision and mission of Fred Rogers by identifying and describing innovative and evidence-based uses of technology and media that promote positive social and emotional development for young children.
This webinar will address the following questions:
• What kinds of technology-mediated interactions have been studied—with what age ranges and populations, for what purposes, and for what ends?
• What are the ways in which early education has utilized technology and media to mediate children’s social and emotional development?
• In what ways are the children in this sample encouraged and supported as they develop what Fred Rogers called the “big 6 of early childhood readiness”?
