Bridging the Gap: Meeting the Needs of Early Childhood Students by Integrating Technology and Environmental Education
Willis, Jana; Weiser, Brenda; Kirkwood, Donna
International Journal of Early Childhood Environmental Education, v2 n1 p140-155 2014
Children come from diverse backgrounds, particularly in terms of their access to the environment and technology. It is our job as teachers to help level the playing field and provide all students an equal chance to succeed. By integrating these two seemingly opposed curricular areas we can create an opportunity for young children to become both environmentally and technologically literate. This article explores how technology tools can be used to encourage students in early childhood programs to engage in activities that will help them appreciate natural resources while exploring environmental issues. Our goal is to examine the use of integrated technology within the environmental curriculum that will support the development of environmental and technology literacies in young children 3-6 years of age.
