Parents are faced with ever-expanding media options to share with their children, and many children’s librarians are beginning to incorporate apps and eBooks for young children into their collections and programming to satisfy the growing need for reader's advisory in the app space ("Appvisory"). This webinar will explore why and how incorporating digital media into our collections and programming is now an essential part of children’s librarianship, and tips and tricks for translating traditional storytelling techniques into the digital realm.
Learning Outcomes

Learners will:
  • Identify sources for current research on the effects of digital media on young children
  • Identify review sources for digital media for children
  • Understand the difference between passive and interactive media and the implications for storytelling
  • Communicate effectively about the importance of healthy media behavior
  • Model healthy media behavior in early literacy programming
