What Can Librarians Learn from Elmo, Sid, and Dora? Applying the Principles of Educational Television to Storytime
Cahill, Maria; Bigheart, Jennifer
Knowledge Quest, v44 n3 p49-57 Jan-Feb 2016
Parents and caregivers can maximize children's engagement with educational television programming by co-viewing and discussing concepts and issues during and following episodes, and parents and caregivers can poach ideas and processes from these programs and apply them to their own interactions with children. School librarians might also consider taking a few pages from the educational television playbook and applying them to storytime. This article focuses on encouraging and presenting pointers to school librarians to consider how they can apply lessons learned from educational TV to storytime in the school library.
