Chip and Amanda had a chance to meet Rhian and hear her opening remarks at the Fred Forward Conference and her vision for NAEYC’s role in advancing the effective, appropriate and intentional use of technology in the early years, as described in the NAEYC and Fred Rogers Center Joint Position Statement.

Rhian discusses developmentally appropriate practice, the early childhood field, and how parents can be involved in their children’s technology use. She also talks about the need to support staff through professional development and resources.

Read this blog entry and learn more about the statement here on the NAEYC website.
