Early Learning Apps in the Library, by Hayley McEwing

I recently presented at OhioNet’s Embracing eBooks Conference. My presentation, “Early Learning Apps in the Library,” set out to ask a few key questions and equip attendees to develop new skills for joint media engagement:

Why, when, and how should we use apps in the library, particularly with young children? Find some answers to these questions. Discover apps that aid early literacy, math, and science learning as well as some notable eBook apps. Get ideas on how to use iPads in library programming.

My presentation slides are below; other session handouts are available here.

  1. I really appreciated Emily Lloyd’s review of the Sock Puppets app. I didn’t use it in story time but had such fun using it to create a video for National Library Card Sign-up Month and we posted it on our library’s Facebook page. Thanks so much!
