Technology has paved the way for new and exciting teaching practices.
In this collection of articles from NAEYC's journal Young Children, teachers of young children will learn about approaches for using various technologies to support their work with children and families. Articles share ideas about how teachers can integrate technology into the curriculum in appropriate and meaningful ways to promote children's learning.
The book provides a study guide for each article. Guides offer questions and activities that invite reflection and build on the content of the articles. Teacher educators and professional development specialists will find the study guides useful tools for facilitating learning. Readers also can use the study guides on their own or in discussions with colleagues or fellow students. Additionally, the book includes the joint position statement "Technology and Interactive Media as Tools in Early Childhood Programs Serving Children from Birth through Age 8" from NAEYC and the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children's Media at Saint Vincent College.
This book is part of NAEYC's best-selling Spotlight series--great resources for the college classroom and for professional development.
