Can my centre or school start this process?

This process does not require a high budget. It does require a strong will and a critical approach to your own pedagogical experiences. Additionally, this also involves a good perception on the role of technology in early childhood education, courage and the need to innovate. The productive process of integration can be started by a strong-minded principal or teacher with one single programmable toy or one digital camera and an ordinary computer.

 

Technology in Early Childhood Education - What are the Benefits?

  • Young students are generally more focused and attentive when there's technology involved compared to the traditional way of learning, which is using the whiteboard. One of the main benefits of involving technology is that it's more engaging and interactive, especially since your main competition is the boredom of students. With technology, this rarely ever happens since their focus is completely engaged.

 

  • Technology also makes it possible for students to undergo training resources that are paperless. Teachers don't have to undergo the struggle of printing resources for students with their lessons. If it's paperless, it also makes things more convenient for both the student and the teacher.

 

  • Technology also makes parents' see the progress of their children. With modern technology today, communication is now made easy between teachers and parents. Parents can now keep track of their children's progress with technology.
