Getting on the same page: Identifying goals for technology use in early childhood education

Resource Type: Fact Sheets & Briefs
Author(s): Daugherty, Lindsay; Dossani, Rafiq; Johnson, Erin-Elizabeth; Wright, Cameron;
Date Issued: 2014
Publisher(s): RAND Corporation
Description: We propose that achieving a better understanding of how to integrate technology into ECE requires answering five key questions: 1. What are the goals for technology use in ECE? 2. How do we define developmentally appropriate technology use in ECE? 3. Once defined, how do we support developmentally appropriate technology use through devices, software, connectivity, and other components of technology infrastructure? 4. How do we ensure that ECE providers are prepared to integrate technology appropriately, intentionally, and productively into ECE settings? 5. How can parents and other family members play a role in the use of technology in ECE? (author abstract)
