We’d like to introduce you to our TQI and NESA accredited Early Childhood Workshops that focus on delivering the expertise you need in an ever-increasing online and digital world to build on a young child’s ICT home experiences and develop their ICT capability through effective early childhood education and care experiences in activities.
Your strategy according to UNESCO for developing ICT capability in Early Childhood Education, therefore, needs to consist of the following:

- Classify your position;
- Set up goals and objectives;
- Build your environment;
- Promote the professional development of your staff;
- Integrate ICT, observe and reflect on teaching and learning with ICT;

This training for early childhood educators is essential in order for you to have a well-developed understanding of the role and potential of ICT for supporting young children’s ICT learning. This is so that you can make good decisions about the use of ICT with, or by children.
