New website provides information, resources, and advice from trusted experts in child development and early education.
As Director of Early Learning at Encyclopedia Britannica, I’m especially happy to announce the launch of Britannica for Parents. This new website provides information, resources, and advice from trusted experts in child development and early education.
We’re living in a time when it’s nearly impossible to distinguish fact from fiction. The erosion of truth is most visible in social media and political news, but everyone—including families and children—are affected by misinformation and bias in the media and beyond. Parents need information that they can trust to help them make good decisions about how to raise their curious learners. They also need guidance in how to help their children navigate the digital landscape.
As Executive Editor of the Britannica for Parents website, I lead a team of experts who create and curate articles and resources that maintain a healthy balance between the solid core values of early childhood education, such as learning through play, and the benefits of new innovations such as apps, tablets, and other digital learning tools. I’ll use my background as a teacher, mom, writer, and editor to ensure that our website will be your go-to source for the latest research and expert advice on topics such as screen time, STEM learning, early literacy, podcasts and picture book recommendations, tips for managing playdates, and helping with your child’s homework.
I hope you’ll visit Britannica for Parents often to catch up on new developments, read columns by guest experts, and get recommendations for family activities. Together we’ll explore what it means to raise curious learners and navigate the digital landscape for 21st-century families.
