Product description


This book is clearly written and easy for practitioners to access, especially in a busy centre like ours. It addresses any anxieties about using ICT in the early years by explaining that it is not ICT itself that is the problem but how it is sometimes used and shows that when used appropriately ICT has the ability to enhance learning and extended thinking. We found the ideas very helpful in developing our ICT practice. --Bernadette Duffy OBE Thomas Coram Children's Centre

This book an eye opener. It shows how ICT easily could be used in every day life with children in Early Childhood Education, for learning about technology as well as for supporting different curriculum content. Children's experiences and play are key-dimensions which make the book appealing to practitioners. The book is very child oriented and at the same time has a pedagogical aim. --Professor Ingrid Pramling Samuelsson Department of Education, Gothenburg University
