Early Childhood Literacy and the Importance of Addressing the Whole Child Through Multi-Literacy Experiences

Webcasts Beth Wrenn-Estes R. Lynn Baker

Early literacy development is more connected to technology and other hands-on experiences than ever before. It is crucial that libraries address the needs of the whole child, including multi-literacy skills like visual-audio, digital, textual, technological, sensory, social and social-emotional. During this colloquium, the presenters will discuss how library services and programming impact a child’s literacy development. They will also take a look at the iSchool’s Early Childhood Literacy curriculum and how it prepares MLIS students for careers in young adult library services.
