Product description

Review

Digital Decisions opens up new ways of thinking about technology and young children by offering sound and concrete advice rooted in the everyday realities of early childhood classrooms. It is refreshing to see examples of technology use with young children that feature open-ended play and exploration. Don't miss the book's creative ideas for Skyping with remote family members to promote cross-cultural discussions, harnessing the power of mobile voice apps to foster language development and employing graphing software to help children understand math concepts. - Lisa Guernsey, Director, Early Education Initiative

For a long time I have been longing for a book for early childhood educators on digital technology. Now, here's the book I have been waiting for--a treasure trove of practical information, soundly based on the best child development and educational research for young children. Simon and Nemeth anticipate and address your every question with how-to information. Most importantly, they transform the debate between technology as good or bad, rather showing us how to use technology actively and interactively within good active and interactive early childhood programs. - Ellen Galinsky, Author, Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs

Fran and Karen have compiled a treasure trove of great advice and practical suggestions for integrating technology into an engaging and developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum. From video cameras and iPads to interactive white boards and smartpens, they share the pros and cons of different devices and applications. Even if you are already tech savvy, Digital Decisions will open your eyes and expand your awareness of how technology fits into a purposefully planned child-centered classroom. - Paula Jorde Bloom
