Puppet & iPad: Measuring Early Literacy With Tech

Oral language lays the foundation for lifelong learning, but how can we assess early literacy skills without the bias of language and cultural barriers? Antle the Moose Puppet shows us how an iPad and real-time data have helped Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in Nova Scotia capture multiple perspectives of early literacy, while promoting English and Indigenous language learning in the home, school, and community. Presenters will share insights and best practices.
