Children in the early years are already digital natives and it is often the adults who are playing ‘catch-up’. A challenge we face is how to keep pace with the ever-changing technological world, whilst ensuring other areas of children’s learning are not overlooked.
This session will encourage participants to take a fresh look at the world of technology in early years, consider how to successfully integrate it within the environment and use it as a purposeful tool. During the session we will be discussing what the key skills are relating to technology that children need to master. We will explore the increasing range of technology based resources and look in focus at how these can be used to effectively support learning.
From dinosaurs to the latest films; knowing how to skilfully and meaningfully shape continuous provision, and provide enhancements which connect with children’s interests is critical to helping children embed and extend learning. This inspirational and practical workshop explores a broad variety of activities and planning that successfully respond to children’s diverse interests and preoccupations. It will also include case studies from schools and settings which have enriched learning and include time for delegates to reflect on their current practice.
