How Can We Aid the Learning of Young Children with Computers
Bork, Alfred
AACE Journal, v12 n1 p1-8 Jan 2004
A very important part of the learning process occurs during early childhood, before preschool and the first few grades. Teachers need to understand the characteristics of this early learning, and ask if they can be extended to later education. While the author's concern here is with computers, the results of such a study might also tell teachers much about other aspects of learning. In this article, the author discusses the characteristics of informal learning. Next, he examines present computer learning modules for young children in the light of the factors discussed in this article. He also considers some possibilities for early childhood learning in reading and writing, scientific literacy, and mathematical literacy.
