Through hands-on experiences with existing and emerging technology and digital media tools, participants learn instructional strategies, receive resources to share with colleagues, and immerse themselves in a supportive community of early childhood educators.
All applications must register through our learning portal.
12 early childhood practitioners are selected per cohort.
