Technology in the Early Years Webinar
Oct 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Designed for parents and guardians, early childhood professionals, and everyone interested in appropriately and effectively integrating technology into the lives of young children, this free one-hour online event will offer support to families, educators, and community members as they navigate the “new normal.”

From remote schooling to video calls with grandparents, young children are engaging with digital technology like never before. While this shift presents incredible opportunities for children’s learning and development, it also raises concerns about appropriate uses of technology in early childhood. Educators, parents, and digital media experts will explore how intentional and appropriate use of technology can:

Support healthy child development
Promote early learning and early literacy
Encourage social-emotional development
Create quality, continuity, and equity in children’s learning
Following a brief presentation by Chip Donohue, founding director of the Technology in Early Childhood Center (TEC) at Erikson Institute and senior fellow at the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Digital Media, Amy Mart, director of professional learning at the Buffett Early Childhood Institute, will moderate a panel discussion with Donohue; Anne Karabon, assistant professor of early childhood and STEM education at the University of Nebraska at Omaha; Gwen Gideon, director of the Omaha Early Learning Center at Skinner; and Keeley Bibins, parent and educational facilitator at the Buffett Early Childhood Institute.

Early childhood professionals who participate in this live webinar are eligible to receive a certificate for one hour of continuing education approved by the Nebraska Department of Education.
