Part 2 of 3 – for elementary school age

Not all screen time is created equally. Some screen time for young children can be harmful and other uses of technology can help young learners expand their critical and creative skills. Participants in this webinar will learn how to distinguish between passive and active uses of screen time and develop a toolkit of resources to use with young children.
