Picture This: Digital and Instant Photography Activities for Early Childhood Learning.
Entz, Susan; Galarza, Sheri Lyn
This book is designed to introduce teachers to digital technology and its uses in the classroom as a new teaching tool that can create curriculum, document learning, provide instant feedback, and share student growth with parents. The book's introduction details the ease in which digital technology can be incorporated into the curriculum. Following the introduction, eight chapters are presented which correspond to the curriculum areas of: (1) language; (2) storytelling/drama; (3) emerging literacy; (4) social studies; (5) physical development; (6) mathematics; (7) sensory exploration; and (8) science. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the curriculum area, its importance, how it is learned, and how that learning can be facilitated through the use of digital technology. The chapters present sample lesson plans that list plan objectives, detailed descriptions of the project, and extension opportunities for small groups, independent explorations, one-on-one instruction, and family involvement. Each chapter ends with a checklist for tracking student progress. (SD)
