Digital practices are forging ahead in leaps and bounds.
Examining digital practices in early childhood education, this book seeks to inform the discussion on how digital technologies are best integrated into play-based pedagogy, and demonstrates effective practices that enhance children’s learning and development. With a range of international contributors, perspectives, and case studies, the fusion of play and portable technology is explored through contemporary research.
This clear text has enabled students to further explore and evaluate the use of technology resources in their settings, drawing on various views in how they can further develop interventions and whole class activities.
This book is amazing!! It approaches different aspects of digital play in a variety of settings. It helped my students to build critical knowledge about digital play
