Family Literacy with Tablets

Angela Reynolds, Head of Youth Services for a rural library system in Nova Scotia, talks about a new program called "Tablet Time" over on the ALSC Blog.  Reynolds shares how she structures her program and discusses why she offers app and device exploration for families with children ages 3-6.  "While I agree that children under 2 really have no need to have a television, iPhone, or tablet in front of them, I do see the value in showing families good apps, how to use them with their children, and how to then extend those ideas into fun literacy games and crafts that they can do at home."
