Tablets and Tech for Kids

On 6/2/16, families came to Pasadena Library and played with a range of different toys that extend the learning potential of the iPad beyond the two-dimensional screen, and into a three-dimensional world of play. Kids played tangrams, word games, an engineering/physics game, programmed a robot, and played robot soccer!

Here’s a video we made to show all the fun games they played:

We hope this inspires you to try new things with your iPads and tablets!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
