  • 14. General Guidelines • Start with a buddy! • Tie content to the collection • Start with books & music you already love • Always test out apps the day you share them • Balance tech & non-tech • Engage parents in discussion • Hand held or mirrored? • Try not to use apps with ads • Use mix of paid & free content • Have a backup • If you have tech difficulties, talk through it • Use the vast body of knowledge you & your colleagues ALREADY have!
  • 15. Suggested Apps to Try out • Animal Sounds • Bean’s babyBoynton 4- pack • Byron Barton Collection 1 • Endless ABC • Felt Board App • Four Little Corners • Grow a Reader • Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy • Mother Goose on the Loose App • Sock puppets • Wee Sing ABC
  • 16. Keep in Mind • Be explicit for caregivers WHY you are using the screen/iPad, make sure you know for whose benefit you have chosen a digital tool • Digital tools DO NOT replace any of our current storytelling tools; they are another tool in the toolkit • Use the best tool for the job (hint: a lot of the time, the best tool is NOT digital!) • We want parents to be able to ask us questions about this topic; they won’t if they feel judged • Children under 2 shouldn’t have too much access to technology. But it might support their caregiver’s learning process.
  • 17. Easy Ways to Get Started • Find your favourite Storytime Book digitially (app, iBooks, Kindle, Nook, library offerings etc) • Try a Digital Felt Board • Post lyrics, welcome and/or resource slides for the parents
  • 18. Demo & Tips & Tricks • Set Up (wired or wireless?) • Lyrics (projected) • Felt Board/MGOL (live or screen shot) • Digital Books (always have paper copies to check out, or on same theme; you can use books you’ve never been able to use before) • Images (non-fiction! Create your own content!) • Sounds (what does a peacock REALLY sound like?) • Music (Easy playlists; display album cover while song is playing and include call number on screen while dancing around) • Talk Sing Read Write Play!
