AutismFriendlyShows.com and Turtle Dance Music, LLC

AutismFriendlyShows.com and Turtle Dance Music will present a fantastic, interactive musical Sensory-Storytime and Technical “How-To” Professional Development Webinar over Zoom for librarians, administrators, teachers and parents.

We will demonstrate software, hardware and technology for livestreaming, green screen tips, instruments, and music technology for librarians to share in their programming. The tutorial also includes – best apps and how-to’s for editing storytimes quickly/professionally on your phone, how to use Tik Tok/Snapchat/Instagram filters in your storytimes (I can teach you how to seamlessly integrate the “cat lawyer” filter and easy to use filters into your Storytimes – like animal filters for Tails and Tales!), green screen set up (including how to film without a green screen) and livestreaming from Zoom/Google Meet as well as several other niche streaming platforms that might meet your needs.

This hands-on workshop will cover topics ranging from trends in libraries for virtual programming, hands-on demonstrations for potential user-friendly musical activities in your library, promotional suggestions for wording of fliers, managing meltdowns, following the children’s strengths and a whole range of practical topics that will also be covered. We will also share strategies and tactics for running sensory-friendly programs digitally and quick hacks for setting up virtual events.

Librarians will benefit from the engaging materials, hands-on activities and abundance of take-home materials.
