Family Employee Resource Group: How to Support Your Children’s Learning from Technology
Young children learning from screens – what works and what doesn’t?
In the spring of 2020, children and caregivers had to quickly adapt to learning from screens. This felt like a new and daunting challenge for many of us. However, we do have over 50 years of research on about young children’s learning from media, largely thanks to programs like Sesame Street and Blues Clues, that can inform best practices. In this session, Dr. Shina Aladé talks about what we know from research about children and screens and how caregivers can use that information to support their children’s learning.
Participants will be able to…
· Apply research insights to their own children’s media use
· Identify resources for selecting high-quality media for children
· Minimize challenges children experience while learning from screen-based devices
