The following is a guest blog post from Michael H. Levine & Lisa Guernsey, authors of the book Tap, Click, Read.
Kids today use a wide variety of tools to learn. How do educators adapt teaching tactics to effectively use modern day tools?
New America and the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop have become known for our joint research and analysis on how digital technologies could be used to improve, instead of impede, early literacy. We have collaborated on the book Tap, Click, Read and developed a toolkit designed to help educators put these insights into practice. The Tap, Click, Read toolkit – comprised of fourteen research-based resources including tipsheets, discussion guides, ratings lists, and a quiz—are now downloadable for free on the First Book Marketplace.
