Evaluating Technology Use for Early Childhood
In this session, participants will evaluate technology and digital media use for PK-3 classrooms against current research and policies. Explore strategies developed at Erikson Institute’s Technology in Early Childhood Center to investigate which technology tools and practices are developmentally appropriate and how to ensure that technology and digital media use is high quality. You will gain a deeper understanding of how to improve technology integration in your early childhood program, while evaluating apps and tangible technology tools commonly used in early childhood classrooms. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Fred Rogers Center’s joint position statement on technology use in early childhood (2012), as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) policy statement and technical report on children’s media use (2016) will both be examined as standards of technology and digital media use with young children.
