Getting on the Same Page: Identifying Goals for Technology Use in Early Childhood Education. Policy Brief
Daugherty, Lindsay; Dossani, Rafiq; Johnson, Erin-Elizabeth; Wright, Cameron
RAND Corporation
Technology use among young children is increasingly a fact of life, and establishing a clear set of goals that are broadly accepted by stakeholders is critical to planning for the successful integration of technology into early childhood education (ECE). However, debates about the role of technology in ECE settings are ongoing, with some stakeholders unwilling to accept any role for technology in ECE. It has been difficult, therefore, to make progress toward identifying common goals, and toward ensuring that technology is integrated in a way that aligns with those goals, once defined. Based on findings from a forum and review of the literature, the authors offer ways to move past that debate and suggest several core goals that might be adopted to guide technology use in ECE.
