Abstract

Abstract: This is a report on the findings of a study in which the purpose was to better understand the implications of the tablet computer for learning and specifically in the art classroom (Ackermann, 2015). A qualitative study was designed following grounded theory measures for data analysis in order to explore timely questions regarding the tablet computer and how young children react to such technology as a drawing tool. An early childhood center was accessed and 30 children between the ages of three and five years old consented to participate. Four educators and 35 parents were also enlisted. Children were observed as they drew on an iPad® tablet and digital drawings created were compared to those made with crayons on paper. Additionally, collaborative art making with the tablet computer was encouraged.
