Summary: "This thought-provoking book demonstrates that the application of technology in the delivery of the curriculum is so much more than this and should give early year's educators confidence and encouragement to develop their own ideas in using ICT in innovative and imaginative ways."--Lynn Kennington, "Early Education newsletter". How can computers and other ICT applications be most effectively used to support learning in early years settings? Why is it important that young children use ICT in ways which are playful, creative and explorative? What research has been carried out about young children using computers and ICT, and what does this tell us? "ICT in the Early Years" carefully considers the potential of ICT to provide opportunities for young children to learn through playful and creative activities, examining research and practice in relation to the educational uses of ICT with young children. The book raises important issues about teaching in the early years using ICT, such as giving pupils control, co-operative working, access and assessment.
