PreK Beyond the Core: Integrating Technology and Interactive Media the ‘Tools’ Way
What is the ‘Tools’ way of integrating technology and interactive media into the early childhood classroom? In this workshop, participants will collaborate with teachers across the region to discuss the research on the use of technology in the early childhood classroom, learn about how to integrate technology in ways to maintain the Tools’ approach to learning, and build technological literacy through play. We’ll share a range of resources, from approaches for integrating Smartboards, to apps for tablet devices and desktop computers, and learn how to evaluate different technology assets from the Tools perspective, to make informed choices about how to integrate technology and interactive media into a Tools classroom.
