The Introduction of New Technologies: New Possibilities for Early Childhood Pedagogy
O'Rourke, Maureen; Harrison, Cathie
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v29 n2 p11-18 Jun 2004
In 2000, IBM invited the Australian National Schools Network to assist in the implementation of the international KidSmart Early Learning Program in Australia. By the end of 2003, more than 300 Young Explorer Units will have been donated to designated early childhood settings serving low socio-economic communities across Australia. This paper will outline some of the results of the case studies undertaken by educators in the participating settings during the first year of the program. The task of integrating the new computers into the early childhood program generated many issues and challenges for educators. Of particular interest were the pedagogical possibilities that emerged through the introduction of new technologies within early childhood settings.
