Chang, Ni
Information Technology in Childhood Education Annual, p247-65 2001
Examines role of teacher observation in children's free play at classroom computers. Considers Piaget's theory of interaction and Vygotsky's theory of zone of proximal development as groundwork for discussing the benefits of teacher observation to a developmentally appropriate classroom, including promoting confidence, selecting software, working with children with special needs, monitoring appropriate content, and promoting construction of math concepts.
