From the Abacus to the iPad: how technology helps children learn.

Join Dr. Stephanie Bell, Head of The Prospect School at Wooster, at the Lewisboro Library on Tuesday, February 25 at 7:00 pm, 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.

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! 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.
