Screen Time & Literacy (webcast)
In this roundtable webcast discussion, three experts discuss what the growing exposure to media (television, websites, and video games) means for a child's literacy development. Tips on evaluating the real educational value of a program or website, "actively watching" TV with your child, integrating media into the classroom, using media to motivate reluctant learners -- and much more -- are tackled in this lively conversation. The presentation also includes recommended resources and discussion questions.
