The wasted potential of millions of our children, including
extremely low literacy rates, represents the greatest public health
crisis facing our country and our country’s future. Tap, Click, Read,
determined to help change this, transforms technology from a
distraction into a partner in its wonderfully-written mission to ensure
that all our children can reach their potentials.
An invaluable resource for any parent, educator or policymaker
interested in harnessing the potential and power of media and new
technologies to support young children’s learning.
Teachers, parents and anyone interested in the potential role
of interactive technology for children’s learning will find that this
book covers all of the important issues exceptionally well. Tap, Click Read’s descriptions of new creative cutting edge efforts is especially illuminating and exciting.
For anyone committed to increasing social equity, this book is
a provocative and inspiring guide, illuminating how the rapidly
changing sea of media and technologies surrounding us both creates and
dissolves hurdles for people and communities struggling with access to
opportunity. Guernsey and Levine invite–and challenge–readers to embrace
a new role as co-creators at its dawn of an innovative learning
ecosystem that can transform our ability to create children who succeed
as the readers, thinkers and learners of tomorrow.
