Half-day workshop on apps available for children 0-8 years

A half-day workshop for teachers and teaching assistants to develop awareness and evaluation of the apps available for children aged 0-8 years. We’ll look at apps designed to promote:

  • Creativity and art-making
  • Literacy and storytelling
  • Problem-solving and possibility thinking

You will try out a wide range of apps and discuss with other practitioners what types of play and learning these apps enable, as well as our concerns about what they potentially hinder. Discussions will feed directly into much-needed research on the role of apps in children’s lives.
