SPLAMBA Workshop at the Watsonville Library with Carisa Kluver @iPad_storytime

Carisa Kluver and I did our first tag-team workshop on Friday at the Watsonville Library with a group of SPLAMBA members who were interested in learning about using apps in storytime, but had never tried it out and were unsure about why they should even consider it. It’s becoming clear to me that in every session I lead, there is at least one person who will admit to me at the end that they didn’t particularly want to learn about using technology with young children, but that the approach we use, and the philosophical reasoning behind WHY we need to do this now has changed their minds. The fact that I’m a Waldorf mom is reassuring to these people as well; I view technology for kids as a reality that we must face with wisdom and moderation, not technology for technology’s sake. See my presentation below, and please also see Carisa’s Kids App Presentation Handout and Kids App Research Resources.
