With many libraries currently closed to the public, library staff are turning to online storytimes as a way to provide quality programming for young patrons.
Join veteran storyteller Kathy MacMillan to explore the fundamental differences between online and in-person storytimes and best practices to bring early literacy programming into an online environment. Learn how to plan video-friendly programs, how to keep your programming interactive even when you don’t have live feedback from storytime attendees, and how to manage external stresses such as technological glitches and internal stresses such as camera fright.
After participating in this event, you will:
- Understand the fundamental differences in approach to online and in-person storytimes
- Have at least three concrete strategies for making online storytimes interactive
- Be able to implement strategies for dealing with external and internal stresses
