Claudia Haines has an App Column & AKLA Workshop


Claudia Haines and I are getting prepared to lead a one-day Access, Content & Engagement workshop and a session at the Alaska Library Association Conference in Anchorage later this week.

Here’s the blurb:

ACE: Access, Content & Engagement is a full day, hands-on workshop that will give participants the confidence to begin using new media in storytimes. We’ll use frameworks like Every Child Ready to Read and Mother Goose on the Loose to develop techniques to incorporate apps, eBooks and other digital tools into early literacy programming in a way that supports early literacy development and fosters caregiver-child interaction. Participants will learn how to evaluate apps and ebooks for use in children’s library services, collections and programs; translate traditional storytelling tools into the digital realm; and model positive media behaviors for parents and caregivers.

Coincidentally, Claudia has also just started contributing app reviews to the Alaska State Library’s weekly bulletin. Check out her review of the Felt Board Mother Goose on the Loose App!
