Digital Early Literacy with Barbara Nemko

Dr. Barbara Nemko champions the 21,000 students in her care as five-term superintendent of Napa County Schools, and learners everywhere. In this video, she emphasizes the value of starting early with digital literacy. The power of interactive literature may be more effective at preventing an achievement gap than traditional early enrichment interventions. After the rousing success of a pilot program in Napa with pre-K children in a four-week summer iPad reading program, the district provided iPads and the platform Footsteps 2 Brilliance to the families of every student in Napa County Schools. Check out the app Dr. Nemko advocates in this video.
