Whether they’ve been open, are just reopening, or are trying to piece together distance learning, many early learning programs have been models for how to support families in the midst of a pandemic. But, as pressures continue to build for using screen-based EdTech (educational technology) and online learning, how can early educators make sure they’re doing the right thing for young children?

As part of our Action Network Live! series on EdTech and the back to school season, early childhood education experts Dr. Nancy Carlsson-Paige and Dr. Denisha Jones of Defending the Early Years explore how educators can manage outside pressures to provide screen-based curricula. With child development at the forefront, Nancy and Denisha offer fresh practical and promising solutions for engaging with families, using technology appropriately, and making sure children get the hands-on play they need to learn and thrive.
