Digital Media & Learning
Early childhood educators and other child-serving professionals require training to develop the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to effectively use technology and digital media in their practice. Without it, expensive devices can often be untouched or underused. We are dedicated to bringing affordable, accessible, high-quality training to those wanting to learn, regardless of their level of technological expertise.
The Fred Rogers Center offers trainings to meet the needs of educators and home visiting programs. Topics include digital media literacy, evaluating program technology readiness, family engagement, identifying exemplary uses of technology, using technology to support social and emotional development, selecting apps and other resources for the classroom or home, and developing technology policies.
Our approach to training is hands-on, with ample time provided to participants to use new technology, learn from peers, and engage in discussions about the role of technology in their practice. Professional development sessions are customized to practitioners’ needs.
