Optimise Technology in Learning and Play
Price: $95 AUD
In an ICT-dominated society, the ubiquitous nature of ICT or technology in our children's lives has led to it being “taken-for-granted”.
Don't let this trend in society continue in the Early Learning environment.
Having technology in the classroom and exposing children to it does not mean that they will develop effective capabilities in ICT.

Children today are already entering Early Learning environments with a range of ICT skills.
It is time to put in place evidence based high impact teaching strategies in Early Childhood that will capitalise on this and develop ICT capability and ICT literacy.
The productive process of using technology in early childhood education can be started by a strong-minded principal or early childhood teacher with one single programmable toy, one digital camera with one solitary computer.
What if you have little to no technology in your centre?
There are many ways for you to overcome this. Technology in early childhood education and care does not have mean the most latest development or even working technology.
Imagine the motivation and engagement will get using the technology that they create themselves. It is as simple as that.
Technological development is advancing at such a rapid pace that many people in communities can't keep up with it. Imagine how much unused or old technology is out there. What would happen if you were to ask for donation?
