For parents, caregivers, educators or any adults with young children in their life.

Presented by Dr. Sarah Roseberry Lytle, Director of Outreach and Education with the University of Washington's Institute of Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS)

Screens are everywhere!  Young children are spending more and more time engaged with screen media.  Learn what and when children might be learning from screens, as well as how we can support children's media activities.

We will explore important cognitive advances children make during the first years of life that impact their ability to learn from screens.  Finally, we will discuss the many practical applications and resources for parents and educators, and ways to make the most of ever-present media technology.  STARS credit available.

Screen Scene is sponsored by the Friends of the Bellingham Public Library.  Library programs are free of charge.  Please call 778-7200 with questions.
