Our popular early childhood education series returns with two spring 2017 workshops.
Wednesday, March 22, 2017
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
March 22, 2017What is the role of technology in early childhood? On the one hand, we want to educate children with 21st century skills, but on the other, we are weary of too much screen time. How can we make good choices about technology in our classroom? In this session, Jean Rogers, Screen Time Program Manager at Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, Sue Cusack, STEM faculty and director of the Makerspace at Lesley University, and Yvonne Liu-Constant, early childhood education faculty at Lesley, will present different views on this issue, followed by a discussion with the audience. Register for the March 22 workshop.
What does trauma look like? How can teachers of young children recognize, honor, and support children in all aspects of their development? In this session, Becca Mason, Lesley alumna and teacher at the Codman Academy Public Charter School in Dorchester, Dr. Catherine Koverola, clinical psychologist and provost at Cambridge College, Dr. Lisa Fiore, education Professor, Director, Child Homeless Initiative, Lesley University, share their experience and insights, as well as practical strategies for working with children and families. Examples of community advocacy efforts will be presented in an interactive format to encourage thinking about opportunities for partnerships in a variety of settings. Register for the April 26 workshop.
