ECRR 2.0: Using Apps and E-Books in Early Literacy Programs

Here are our slides from ECRR 2.0: Using Apps and E-Books in Early Literacy Programs. There were also a number of ALSC blog posts about our session:

E-Books and Apps in Storytime
Early literacy and apps
Using Apps and eBooks in Early Literacy Programming

A large list of LittleeLit-vetted ECRR-supportive apps is on it’s way! Stay tuned!

Parents and librarians want to know how to safely integrate apps and e-books into their lives without feeling guilty. Join Cen Campbell and Saroj Ghoting as they share why apps are useful and successful and should be incorporated into early literacy programming; how to model healthy media behavior; and what is the current research on the effects of digital media on children.

  1. Thanks for the talk! It was fun to see how apps might be seamlessly integrated into storytime. For those of us who can’t – or choose not to – use apps in storytime, it would be fun next time to hear about other ways we could model joint engagement: tablets within the department, “Appy Hours” or other programs geared to adults, special technology programs for adults with their kids, lists of recommended apps or app review sites, etc.
