When: Friday, May 15, 2020 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Dr. Bonny Norton’s Zoom webinar on May 15, 2020, will demonstrate how Storybooks Canada can be used in homes for online language and literacy learning during Covid-19 (storybookscanada.ca). Parents and children are the primary audiences. The Storybooks Canada platform is a free, user-friendly digital site with 40 illustrated stories, for children and youth, in the most widely spoken languages of Canada. Parents and children will learn how to use the audio feature, toggle between languages, download stories in a range of formats, and connect the stories to the new BC Curriculum. Q & A included.
The event is being organized by the Vancouver School Board with the help of the Settlement Workers in Schools (SWiS) program. This event for families follows two online Zoom presentations that Dr. Norton gave to teachers in the North Vancouver School Board on May 4 (75 participants) and the Vancouver School Board on May 7 (95 participants).
