Presenter for the Following Session
- Talking Pens and Flip-Cameras Transform Learning in Preschool
The availability of multiple forms of technology is changing the way in which young children learn and discover their world. Rather than focusing on how technology fits into existing curricula, this interactive presentation will focus on the new ways technology allows children to create meaning and make sense of their world that extends beyond traditional reading and writing activities using slides and videos.
