Technology and Interactive Media for Young Children: Connecting the Vision of Fred Rogers to Research and Practice
Instructor: Katie Paciga
Date: Wednesday, November 16, 2016
In this webinar, Katie Paciga will present the results of a recent research synthesis that sought to advance the vision and mission of Fred Rogers by identifying and describing innovative and evidence-based uses of technology and media that promote positive social and emotional development for young children.
This webinar will address the following questions:
• What kinds of technology-mediated interactions have been studied—with what age ranges and populations, for what purposes, and for what ends?
• What are the ways in which early education has utilized technology and media to mediate children’s social and emotional development?
• In what ways are the children in this sample encouraged and supported as they develop what Fred Rogers called the “big 6 of early childhood readiness”?
