Helping Children Create, Collaborate, and Communicate--with Technology Children are growing up with technologies as part of their daily lives at home and in school. For educators, it is important to understand how to use technologies to promote learning in developmentally appropriate ways. This book helps you make thoughtful, informed decisions that will enhance what you are already doing to support children's learning. Learn how to
  • Use technologies in ways that build on, not detract from, the learning children gain through play
  • Introduce technologies using a gradual release of responsibility model
  • Foster children's storytelling, reflection, early coding skills, and more
  • Use technologies to enrich your partnerships with families and invite them into the classroom community
  • Work with colleagues to develop a digital culture that supports the program's goals
With the guidance in this book, you'll be able to evaluate technologies and understand how to put them to their best uses in your program.
