Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens

With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos, and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes—if they are surrounded by adults who know how to help and if they are introduced to media designed to promote literacy, instead of undermining it. In this webinar, Michael Levine and Lisa Guernsey, authors of Tap, Click, Read: Growing Readers in a World of Screens, show how educators and parents can help children grow into strong, passionate readers who are skilled at using media and technology of all kinds—print, digital, and everything in between.

Michael and Lisa teach about tools and strategies for supporting literacy for all. Early childhood educators including teachers, librarian/media specialists, technology specialists, literacy coaches, curriculum specialists, and parents will benefit from this webinar session.

It is important to know what kids are doing with these apps and vice versa; co-read is good. Are there apps with more than English so ELL parents/students can read together?

Hi govbent21 - I contacted the authors and here was their suggestions: "There are many apps that are now offering multiple languages for educators. Common Sense reviews have a special category for ELLs and Edutopia also has great resources in this area. Also, Diversity in Apps is an organization committed to ensuring that app content is reflective of a diverse population, including linguistic diversity. Here's a link: http://diversityinapps.com/"
