From the Abacus to the iPad: how technology helps children learn.
The iPad is good for more than games –in fact, it’s a great educational device to help your child achieve greater success in school! Join Dr. Stephanie Bell, Head of School at the Prospect School at Wooster for an enlightening discussion about how to use the technology you already have as an educational tool which can be tailored according to your child's strengths, challenges and learning style. Dr. Bell will share how technology can help your child with organization, reading, note-taking, and study skills. Bring your own iPad--or whichever device you use-- and be ready to download some of the best apps out there for creating a love of learning in your child.
Dr. Stephanie Bell is the new Director at The Prospect School at Wooster, in Danbury, CT. Dr. Bell has a dual M.P.S. in Elementary and Special Education from Manhattanville College and an Ed.D in Instructional Leadership from Western Connecticut State University. She has been a classroom teacher for mainstreamed students with educational challenges like speech and language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and others.
The event will be held at the Ridgefield Library on Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30pm. We hope to see you there!
