Shifting Views: Exploring the Potential for Technology Integration in Early Childhood Education Programs
Dietze, Beverlie; Kashin, Diane
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v39 n4 Fall 2013
Using technology with children in play-based early learning programs creates questions for some within the Early Childhood Education (ECE) community. This paper presents how two faculty who teach in ECE-related degree programs integrated educational technology into their teaching pedagogy as a way to model to their students how it can be used to support children's play and learning opportunities. The authors identify how collegial dialogue helped them to use various technologies and social media in their teaching, which transformed their curriculum and pedagogical philosophy. The paper argues that if technology creates connections between learning in the college or university classroom and is effective practice, it is worthy of further exploration.
