The Southwest Kansas Library System is pleased to host the free one-day seminar, Wired Kids: How Technology Impacts Early Child Development, presented by Cari Ebert, MS, CCC-SLP.
October 23rd, 9 am – 3:30 pm in Dodge City, KS
Held at the Little Theater located on the Dodge City Community College campus
Ebert, a pediatric Speech Language Pathologist, will be sharing with us evidence to guide those who work in early childhood settings as we live and work in the “Digital Age.”
Just because technology is available at our fingertips, doesn’t necessarily mean we should be using it with very young children. Infants, toddlers, and preschool age children do not learn the same way that older children and adults do. It’s not just a matter of being “pro-technology” or “anti-technology,” but rather what is appropriate for the developing brain.
This course contains must-have information for professionals serving the birth to five population, and is especially relevant for librarians working with young children.
Thanks to a Building Blocks grant from the Russell Child Development Center, this seminar will be offered free to all those who register. Lunch will be provided for a cost of $8.50. Register by October 16th at www.swkls.org or follow this link: https://goo.gl/UQ7Xiq
