Toddlers and Tablets Webinar

Nicolet Federated Library System has a fabulous webinar on using tablets and apps in storytime.  And it's only 30 minutes!  Cathy Kolbeck, Children's librarian at Algoma Public Library, offers quick tips on getting started, several app recommendations, and a sample storytime.

My library has a staff iPad.  We are in the process of replacing an AWE computer with an iPad.  During the webinar, Cathy reminded me that you can share the same app to multiple devices logged into the same account.  In storytime, I can demonstrate an app using the staff iPad and then kids can try it out after storytime on the library's public iPad.

If you want to learn more about apps in storytime and media mentorship, take the free online class Digital Storytime offered by DPI.
