3) FREE BOOKS
1) SELF-TALK AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Work that is focused on public service can be both rewarding and costly. Being mindful of our own work narrative and understanding how we deal with conflict are two key areas that require our attention. The Washington State Library presents Self-Talk and Emotional Intelligence: Improving your Work Narrative. Participants in this 3-hour workshop will learn how to:
- Identify and adjust their self-talk;
- Understand their personal work mission;
- Develop awareness of cycles of conflict; and
- Improve clarity and effectiveness of communication.
This free workshop will be presented on several dates and at multiple locations around the state beginning January 30 at Fort Vancouver Regional Library. For more information and to register, visit sos.wa.gov/q/EI.
2) SCREEN SCENE FOR CHILDREN
Screens are everywhere! Young children are spending more and more time engaged with screen media. Learn what and when children might be learning from screens as well as how we can support children’s media activities. The State Library presents Screen Scene: Best Practices for Using Screen Media with Young Children, a workshop that will explore important cognitive advances children make during the first years of life that impact their ability to learn from screens. The workshop will also discuss the many practical applications and resources for parents and educators, and ways to make the most of ever-present media technology.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to:
- Summarize research-based understandings of the impact of digital engagement on early learning;
- Apply an understanding of joint media engagement to their regular interactions with children in a library setting;
- Develop appropriate models of digital engagement for very young children.
