Abstract

The use of digital resources in early childhood settings in Australia is a recent phenomenon. In 1999 Education.Au, a company funded by the various educational authorities in Australia, commissioned a study of the educational use of the Internet with children eight years and under. Data were col-lected through a literature review and discussions or inter-views with all stakeholders in early childhood education: children, families, early childhood educators, school system representatives, academics, researchers, policy makers and advisers. This paper reports on the major outcome of the commissioned study: a pedagogical framework for the use of digital resources in early childhood settings. The framework includes a rationale and a description of the key elements of effective practice: quality resources, effective learning envi-ronments and appropriate teacher interactions
