This workshop, within the Erasmus+ Project Let’s try ICT (www.letstry-ict.eu), will offer participants an introduction on how to use mobile apps with early childhood intervention. After a brief theoretical background, participants will have the possibility of a hands-on experience of selected apps. Pros and possible cons of their experience will be reflected in the group and recommendations for useful apps for early childhood intervention and inclusive kindergartens will be given. Apps for concrete hands-on exercises will be available during the workshop. This workshop is intended for a group of experts who work with children in early ages (ECI specialists, kindergarten teachers, speech and language pathologists, special teachers, occupational therapists etc.), as well as students of the above listed professions. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
