1. Apps provided by TGH

  • Decide on how many TGH picked apps you will go over during a session

    • Which types of apps and in what combination?

    • How much time will you spend on demonstrating?

    • How will you determine how much time will be parents only and parent/child time?

    • How can you keep children busy with a hands-on project while you are working with the adult?

  • It's key for adults to feel confident with the apps so that they know best how to guide the child.​

2. Other apps you think are useful.

  • It’s also ok to introduce families to other apps that you think are helpful for the child’s development and learning.

  • Feel free to share your feedback with us about the provided apps, and suggestions for apps to add to the collection. You can include this feedback in your Post-Course-Survey!

3. Introduce topics that help adults support their child’s development and learning

  • The 3 I's Model: Introduce, Interact, Integrate

  • Healthy screen time use

  • Mixing tech with hands-on projects (for example, looking up dinosaurs and then creating a drawing or a sculpture of a dinosaur)

  • Other ways that they can support the child’s learning

4. Content for Adults

  • If you feel you’ve covered enough apps and parent resources, consider integrating some content solely for the adult

  • Do the adults in your course need support learning how to email from the iPad? Connect to family and friends with Facetime or Google Meet?

  • Do the adults want to learn how to search for jobs online?

  • Would it be helpful to show them how to order groceries or prescriptions for delivery?
