Parent Education and Encouragement Session
Saturday, September 24th
from 9:00 - 12:00
This session will guide families to use Apps as interactive tools for Listening and Language Learning. There is no limit to the listening, language and learning possibilities available through apps. Apps are common tools in auditory verbal practices, clinics, schools and homes. If you own a device that runs apps, you have valuable resources at your fingertips (and at your child’s fingertips too!).
I will present strategies to engage, extend and expand on apps designed to promote listening and spoken language. The session will provide parents with ideas for making connections with apps to meaningful conversations and experiences, strategies to consider, the pros and cons of using apps over traditional materials and how to integrate the benefits of both. Key factors in choosing apps will be discussed.
I will share suggestions for “exploding” some featured apps through themes and with traditional books, songs, crafts, games and more. The format of the session will be interactive using iPad apps, hands-on materials and audience participation. If you have an iPad or tablet bring it to the presentation.
