Description

Technology is rapidly changing the ways we live our lives and interact with the world. It's also changing how you teach. Technology can enhance your classroom's complete curriculum and assessment and help you create and capture meaningful experiences, support inquiry, and expand your classroom's walls. This comprehensive framework will help you select and use a variety of technology and interactive media tools in your classroom--including digital cameras, audio recorders, webcams, publication and presentation tools, and multi-touch mobile devices.

Reflecting Technology in Early Childhood Programs, the joint position statement of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the Fred Rogers Center, Teaching in the Digital Age: Smart Tools for Age 3 to Grade 3 includes
Developmentally appropriate and effective strategies to use technology to facilitate children's learning
28 links to video clips that provide a deeper look at how these practices are used in real classrooms
32 forms to help you plan, reflect on, and evaluate how you use technology to help children learn
