Part 1 | Media Mentorship in Your Classroom

November 19 @ 7:00 PM ET

It's the classic debate: is there a place for media in any learning environment? If so, what is our role in helping children--even the littlest learners--understand and use it? In this interactive discussion, the first of three 'live learning' sessions, we'll consider your role as a Media Mentor. We’ll cover all the hot topics including: screen time, digital citizenship, and technology availability. REGISTER NOW

Everyone loves a good story--especially our littlest learners! In this session, we’ll share ideas and best practices you can use to inspire creative, young storytellers.
