Apps for Children: Facilitating creativity, literacy and problem-solving

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
