New media is everywhere and children are using it. This webinar will focus on real best practices of incorporating new media into preschool services. What are some specific apps that are age appropriate for preschoolers?; How much time should be devoted to using an iPad or other tablets in a preschool storytime?; What are the pros and cons of leading a digital-focused preschool storytime versus a traditional preschool storytime? i.e. Should you devote the last 10 minutes of your traditional storytime to sharing apps with children and parents OR spend 25 minutes in a "digital storytime" using mostly apps and ebooks instead of traditional books and activities; How can digital resources be incorporated into preschool outreach programming?

Participants will know:

  • How to engage and train youth services staff to work with the new media in a storytime setting.

Participants will understand:

  • What kind of support they need (time, peer, and technology).

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the issues, challenges, and benefits created when new media is introduced to storytime throughout a library system.
