Early Edge California Hosts Distance Learning Webinars

The mandate to close schools in California and engage in distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the way that Early Learning teachers are able to engage with their students. To support the current needs of our teachers and the young children they work with, Early Edge California is designing a series of webinars to provide new tools for teaching from home.

Offered in English and Spanish, the complimentary webinar will be led by Carola Oliva-Olson, Ph.D., CSU Channel Islands Associate Professor of Early Childhood Studies, and Anna Arambula, CSU Channel Islands Lead Instructor and a coach for the Language Learning Project. 

You can also view the presentation slides and additional materials for our distance learning webinars.
