Choosing the Right Technology for Early Childhood Education


Screen Shot 2014-02-07 at 12.31.02 PMIt is important for teachers to feel confident and competent when it comes to choosing and implementing the most appropriate technology tools for your early childhood classroom.  Whether a technology enthusiast looking for new ideas and guidance about developmentally appropriate practices, or completely new to the idea of using technology with young children, the presenters in this month’s Digital Decisions for Collaborative Learning webinar have ideas to share.  Fran Simon and Karen Nemeth of the Early Childhood Technology Network provided guidance for making a technology plan based on different experiences and beliefs, the needs of the students, the context of the curriculum, and the resources available. Attendees learned to cut through the clutter and evaluate the tools and opportunities technology has to offer and integrate them into an early childhood classroom in a way that offers real-life, hands-on, interactive activities to children. Attendees learned to use technology as an interactive learning tool and saw what types of technology could be most effective for dual language learners or children who may have special needs.
