Tech Time with Purpose

December 15, 2020 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

During this free 90-minute webinar, library staff will learn about current research on the use of digital technologies with young children and receive guidance and support to help navigate this challenging technological landscape with young patrons. Register for this Early Learning with Families Webinar.

Today’s children are growing up in a technology rich world, with new products and devices rapidly being introduced. Conversations around children and screen time have become common, but as technologies change, the discussions should also include emerging technologies such as digital fabrication tools, virtual reality, and social robots.

Digital technologies addressed will include:

  • Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR)
  • Social robots and conversational agents
  • Digital games
  • Coding
  • Digital fabrication tools

Presented by: Michelle Randall, PhD, Head of Research and Evaluation, Bay Area Discovery Museum.
