Technology can play a role in supporting early communication, language and literacy. It can offer new learning opportunities, through ebooks, apps, and even video calling. Technology should never be used as a replacement for adult interaction, but rather as a tool for interaction and learning.
Studies have shown that technology can be an important route in to reading for certain groups of children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds and boys.
At Creative Explorers we aim to use a variety of mediums to showcase to children the importance of technology and how it can be used to help us in everyday life. We also couple this will learning how technology has progressed over the years, for example from typewriters to computers to tablets.
