Technology-enhanced Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage

By Moira Savage, Anthony Barnett

Discussing learning technologies in relation to young children often provokes a wide range of passionate responses, from sceptics to enthusiasts. This text explores the issues in a holistic, pedagogical, and research-informed way. It will help professionals clarify the complex issues involved, understand the scope of available technology, examine the interplay between learning and specific technologies, and, more broadly, create a vision for a technology-enabled learning environment that is child-centred, playful, creative, and interactive. Recurring case studies are analyzed from a number of theoretical perspectives, and the approach deliberately goes beyond the scope of 'understanding of the world' to consider the contribution of technology-enhanced learning to a range of different contexts and subject areas. Throughout there are clear links to professional standards, the Early Years Foundation Stage, and the characteristics of effective learning.
