Moses, Annie M.; Jennings, Nancy A.; Bennett, Colleen M.; Cregan, Gabrielle E.; Maras, Elly Q.; Saritoprak, Seyma N. – Computers in the Schools, 2019
Electronic media are ever-present for young children; yet, far more is known about media at home than in child care settings. This two-part survey study examined early childhood teachers' beliefs, access to, and self-reported use of media in U.S. settings. One group of teachers (N = 118) reported on media beliefs and practices (Study 1), and…

Urlings, Corrie C.; Coppens, Karien M.; Borghans, Lex – Computers in the Schools, 2019
We explored the potential of a robotics application in education as a measurement tool of child executive functioning skills. Sixty-five kindergarteners received assignments to go through a maze with a programmable robot, the Bee-Bot. Via observation we quantified how they solved these tasks. Their performance was successfully aggregated into a…

Lu, Ya-Huei; Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Anne T.; Ding, Ai-Chu; Glazewski, Krista – Computers in the Schools, 2017
Although many elementary schools have adopted one-to-one programs, we still lack information on how teachers integrate iPads or other tablets into their daily instruction, especially in early childhood settings. The purpose of this case study was to present how four experienced iPad-using early childhood teachers integrated one-to-one iPads into…

Miller, David; Robertson, Derek; Hudson, Alison; Shimi, Jill – Computers in the Schools, 2012
In this article we look at the links between early years pedagogy and the use of digital game-based learning. Early years education is a distinctive phase of the education system in many countries, generally covering the age range from 3-6 or 7 years. In the United Kingdom, it tends to bridge preschool and the first two years in primary school.…

Santoro, Lana Edwards; Bishop, M. J. – Computers in the Schools, 2010
It seems appropriate, if not necessary, to use empirically supported criteria to evaluate reading software applications. This study's purpose was to develop a research-based evaluation framework and review selected beginning reading software that might be used with struggling beginning readers. Thirty-one products were reviewed according to…
