child and adult using computer

The best technology experiences for your child are shared with you, are engaging, and let your child take the lead.

Find reviews of apps and websites and more advice from these recommended resources.

talk together
Talk to your child about computer games and apps before, during, and after the technology experience.

sing together
Connect what's happening on the screen with off-screen activities. Sing along to online fingerplays, rhymes & songs and continue singing long after the computer is turned off.

read together
Enjoy eBooks together just like traditional print books and let your child take the lead and talk about what's happening in the story.

write together
Using touch screen devices that require point, swipe, and pincer grip motions to navigate can help children develop the fine motor skills necessary to write.

play together
The best technology experiences for your child involve interactive activities rather than passive viewing. Encourage interaction by playing computer games or apps together with your child.
