Abstract

This paper will examine pre-service teachers’ understanding of mass media as a pedagogical tool which can be used to teach various subjects in early childhood education (birth to age 8) programs. In this paper, I will identify (a) the perceptions, values, and experiences of pre-service teachers about using mass media in early childhood classrooms, (b) what they think about teaching with mass media, and (c) what they need from ECE teacher education programs in order to teach young children by means of mass media. By examining pre-service teachers’ learning experiences of and expectations about media, this paper will provide some suggestions and implications for researchers and teacher educators in developing media education in early childhood classroom settings.
