In this Little eLit blog post, Melissa Depper of Arapahoe Library District describes the development, launch, and implementation of their Tech Together program “designed to provide an opportunity for parents & caregivers of preschool children to learn about age-appropriate digital experiences, ask questions, and explore tablets & apps”.

“We wanted to let our families know that when it comes to sharing technology with children, the best digital practices are related to the best analog practices: interacting, engaging, conversing, and sharing”.
