Date & time: Saturday 16th June 2018, 10am-1pm
Location: Building 9, BG01/BG02, Middlesex University, London
A half-day workshop for early childhood practitioners in order to develop awareness and critical evaluation of the apps available for children aged 0-8 years in three different areas:
- Creativity and art-making
- Literacy and storytelling
- Problem-solving and possibility thinking
Practitioners will be invited to try out a wide range of apps and to discuss what types of play and learning these apps enable, as well as what they potentially hinder. Discussions will feed directly into much-needed research on the role of apps in children’s lives. Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
Places are limited and you need to book in advance. Please RSVP by email to Mona Sakr, M.Sakr@mdx.ac.uk
