Kids in Library

During the preschool years, young children are developing a sense of initiative and creativity. They are much curious about the world around them and about learning. They are exploring their ability to create and communicate using a variety of media and through creative movement, singing, dancing and using their bodies to represent ideas and experiences. Digital technologies provide one more outlet for them to demonstrate their creativity and learning.

Kids are crazy for technology and it’s really important to provide early learners with time to simply play, create and use their imaginations. At Pencildz, we ensure that our teachers help our children learn to use current technology in this constantly evolving world. Some simple ways to inculcate technology:

  • Provide opportunities for children to begin to explore and feel comfortable using “traditional” mouse and keyboard computers.

  • Capture photos of block buildings or artwork that children have created; record dramatic play to show it later for children.

  • Celebrate the accomplishments of children with digital media displayed on a digital projector.

  • Record the stories about themselves; make digital audio or video files to document their progress.

  • Explore digital storytelling with children. Co-create digital books with photos of the children’s play or work; attach digital audio files with the child as the narrator.
