For better or worse, technology is becoming more and more prevalent in both the home and classroom environments. In this interactive session, Dr. Tammy Kwan, co-founder & CEO of Cognitive ToyBox, will review the latest research on how to make the most of technology in the early childhood classroom. She’ll demonstrate how to use the research-based “four pillars of learning” framework as a means to evaluate the educational value of different “educational” apps for young children. Kwan will provide practical ways to implement developmentally appropriate practices using the Cognitive ToyBox observation and game-based assessment platform as an example. Attendees will come away with an understanding of how to best utilize the limited screen time allotted to their young students each week.
This session is scheduled on February 23rd from 2:00-3:00 PM PT.

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
