OMEP-USA is co-sponsoring with NAEYC its 10th FILMedia Event at November's NAEYC annual conference. We will talk about all the screens available to very young children and this is a great introduction. Children will learn to use smartphones at some point in time; a lot of us who are really "older" have acquired an iPhone and learned to use it capably-I have had a cell phone since 1997 and just bought my first iPhone.
