On Little eLit, Youth Services Librarian Claudia Haines shares her recent symposium with co-presenters Tanya Smith of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media, and Dorothy Stoltz and Kristen Bodvin of the Carroll County Public Library in the blog post “Welcome to the Digital Neighborhood: A Fred Rogers Center and Little eLit Digital Literacy Symposium.”  This event brought together librarians and educators “to talk about what’s new and what’s still true in the world of new media and young children, and to train librarians in their evolving role as media mentors.”

This post shares two set of slides from the syposium.  Claudia states, “The first set of slides are those used by Tanya and I to discuss research, the important NAEYC/Fred Rogers joint position statement on technology and young children, how to evaluate apps and other new media, the role digital media has in the library, and factors to consider when incorporating new media into storytime and other programs.”  “This second set of slides were used by Dorothy and Kristen to talk about Every Child Ready to Read and early literacy.”
