This course was developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to give a brief overview of how technology can be used by early learners to foster relationships, expand learning, and solve meaningful problems. Guiding principles of technology use in early education are discussed as well as best practices that can guide early childhood programs as they incorporate technology.
1. Summarize guiding principles for early educators, early learning programs, schools, and families on the use of technology by young children.
2. Discuss appropriate use of technology and how it should be incorporated to increase access to learning opportunities for all children and to strengthen key relationships.
3. Describe how research-based guidance that supports technology can be provided to families and early learning educators.
4. Outline privacy and security considerations related to computer software, mobile applications, and web-based tools in early childhood settings.
