And How are the Children..?

Quick Links: The Literacy Ambassador® on YouTube

Posted on: February 13, 2010


I like this – nice and simple explanation and demonstration of a quick, easy learning game to play with young children. For busy parents and teachers, it can be really nice to just have it all laid out, step by step. I’ll be looking for more from the Literacy Ambassador® in the future.

I firmly believe that now is the time for early care and education practitioners to jump on board with the digital age and really learn how to take advantage of the media tools available to us. I’ve seen so many educators paralyzed by a fear of technology; How would we respond if children expressed such fears? We should afford ourselves the same encouragement that we offer them: you CAN do it!

I would love to hear about other multimedia learning activity presentations that you know of.  Maybe I can do a round-up if there are enough suggestions… Please let us know in comments if you can recommend any!  Thanks!

Thanks, Atena, for sharing the video. It’s just one of the activities that can be used either at home or at school in my new books, Anytime Reading Readiness and Before They Read from Maupin House Publishing.

I love the idea of using technology to share simple easy activities with those that might not see themselves as “literacy-savvy” or “learning savvy” parents. My idea is that literacy is in every home (chats, reading food labels, ads, the Internet, etc. and I want every parent out there to know that they can have an incredible impact on their child’s future success in school and in life if they’ll just put a little bit of time each day into that important area.
