Today’s Exchange EveryDay, from our friends at Exchange magazine, features an excerpt from Warren Buckleitner’s chapter in Technology and Digital Media in the Early Years: Tools for Teaching and Learning, “What Would Maria Montessori Say about the iPad.” Warren imagines, as only Warren can imagine, a conversation in the green room at an NAEYC annual conversation just before a panel presentation by Montessori, Piaget, Skinner and Vygotsky as these theorists discuss the intersection of child development theory and the technology tools of the digital age. Check out EED and learn more about the book, now available from Exchange.
