About this event

About the Event:

Join Dr Ng Seok Moi and Ms Sangeeta Deshpande as they explore and share with parents and teachers the impact reading has on children’s learning and language acquisition, the importance of fun for the engagement of children in learning, and ways to leverage on technology to enhance children’s reading experience. Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board and the Society for Reading & Literacy, this talk will also feature a panel discussion where parents and teachers can engage the speakers to delve deeper into these topics.
