Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 1:00-2:00 pm PDT

With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos, and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes—if they are surrounded by adults who know how to help and if they are introduced to media designed to promote literacy, instead of undermining it. In this webinar, Michael Levine and Lisa Guernsey, authors of Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens, will show how educators and parents can help children grow into strong, passionate readers who are skilled at using media and technology of all kinds—print, digital, and everything in between.Join Michael and Lisa to learn about tools and strategies for supporting literacy for all. Early childhood educators including teachers, librarian/media specialists, technology specialists, literacy coaches, curriculum specialists, and parents all will benefit from this live, interactive session. Michael and Lisa will field questions from attendees after their presentation. Check out their book at http://www.tapclickread.org
