Abstract

The early childhood curriculum should provide many opportunities for young children to engage in creative experiences and arts-based learning. This paper describes the role that technology and interactive media plays in nurturing children’s creativity and describes how it is a means for arts-based teaching and learning. Early childhood theories that support this approach are shared, as they relate to recommendations for developmentally-appropriate practice. Several technology-based teaching strategies for each of the creative arts are described, along with the resources that are needed to plan developmentally-appropriate and effective creative activities across the curriculum.
