- How can I help my children discover engaging, interesting experiences online and offline?
- How can digital devices add to the mix, helping my children learn and grow?
Fred Rogers Center says,
“Learning is most likely to occur when children are having warm, language-rich interaction with their adult caregivers.”eBooks, video games and digital media provide many opportunities for active, engaging experiences, but they can also be used as electronic babysitting. When you’re looking at using media with children, always ask yourself whether it’s encouraging active, imaginative engagement and interactions with adults or peers.
This week, I'd like to explore different aspects of using eBooks and digital media. I'll share my thoughts in six parts:
- Part 1: Framework
- Part 2: Reading together
- Part 3: ebooks through public libraries
- Part 4: Playing together
- Part 5: Creating together
- Part 6: Resources to learn more
