Abstract

This presentation will describe ongoing research projects on how technology improves teacher effectiveness as well as how it can assist young children’s learning. This presentation has three topics focusing on the use of technology in early childhood education from different perspectives including; the use of technology by diverse young learners, technology in Chinese early childhood education, and the relationship between technology and its effect on cognitive development. The first topic will explore how to integrate technology in the daily learning activities in the early childhood classroom in China. The last two topics will give insight about how technology can support American young children’s learning and development by examining iPad instruction for science and educational video games.
