Educational research will likely never be able to keep pace with technological innovation. It therefore will become increasingly important that early childhood professionals rely on existing knowledge to effectively evaluate and integrate emerging technology in the natural environment rather than waiting for a broad platform of research to inform their teaching practices. Although educators are better informed about how to integrate technology into educational settings than in previous decades, the reality is that poorly designed educational software still is commonplace (Boone & Higgins, 2005). No matter how well it is designed, technology cannot replace human interaction or a teacher and parent's attention to each child's unique needs (L. Z. Cooper, 2005). Still, integrating technology in early childhood settings is an essential aspect of early learning and yields greater academic success in later years (Judge, Puckett, & Bell, 2006).
