    Thanks to those who joined the virtual meeting.  We had a great discussion of this past year's activities, including two webinars, a Wakelet collection of resources, and a post on the NAEYC blog about using technology to build relationships.

    If you missed the meeting and want to hear the discussion, a recording is posted at https://youtu.be/qY_dpimnGSI.

    Sorry I missed this. It sounds really good. I would like to be in touch with Early Childhood Ed Tech interested folks and similar future meetings. Here's a free Covid-19 Response conference from May which includes dealing with virtual education and 10 EdTech solutions with young children  https://www.youngchildexpo.com/covid-19response

    I found the NAEYC blog post and the Wakelet collection of resources to have helpful tips and strategies. The information is not about finding and using the latest app but about using technology, including some apps, in ways that help educators connect with young children and their families, such as using Zoom and digital photography. Thank you to the Tech and Young Children Interest Forum! I will be sharing these with colleagues!
    Best wishes,
    Peggy
