Using Apps to Foster Language and Literacy in the Early Years

The focus of this advanced iPad training session was two-fold: first to assist early childhood educators in identifying the communication strengths and needs of the children in their care, and secondly, to help early childhood educators implement strategies to boost language and emergent literacy skills for all children in their care. Participants learned to critically evaluate the language and literacy potential within a given app as well as to set language and literacy targets for shared iPad use in the classroom.
