About the TEC Center
Collecting, Curating, Connecting, Creating = Igniting
The TEC Center at Erikson Institute empowers early childhood educators to make informed decisions about the appropriate use of technology with children from birth to age 8. Through carefully selected resources and real-world examples, the Center strengthens educators’ digital literacy and their ability to intentionally select, use, integrate, and evaluate technology in the classroom and other early childhood settings. The TEC Center was launched with the support of The Boeing Company.
The TEC Center at Erikson Institute is an innovative approach to professional development and an online community for early childhood educators dedicated to:
- enhancing the technology skills, experience, and digital media fluency
- increasing the intentional, appropriate, and effective use of technology and interactive media with young children
- promoting the use of technology tools for effective, engaging and empowering teacher preparation and professional development.
Addressing these needs through the innovative use of technology tools and proven distance education methods, translating research into effective practices, and empowering educators and parents through digital media fluency are goals of the TEC Center.
