It’s simply naive to think that our littlest learners can’t or shouldn’t have access to classroom technology. And it simply isn’t wise to incorporate technology with bad instructional habits: A screen should never take the place of a teacher or be used to babysit students.
It’s well-established that educational technology has a place in the lowest grades.
Technology — when used appropriately — can be a tool for learning.
Technology should be used to increase access to learning opportunities for all children.
Technology may be used to strengthen relationships among parents, families, early educators, and young children.
Technology is more effective for learning when adults and peers interact or co-view with young children.
Meaningful Use Mitigates the Dangers of Excessive Screen Time
Just as educational experts acknowledge technology’s role in early education, physicians and psychologists also recognize that spending too much time immersed in computers, smartphones or social media can have a negative impact on child development. Again, it’s important for teachers and technologists to strike the appropriate balance and plan age-appropriate lessons when incorporating technology in the primary classroom setting. a good app should follow the “inspect, redirect, make correct” rule, allowing teachers to inspect student work at any moment during a lesson, not after the fact. That gives teachers time to redirect students to the correct path and students enough time to make the corrections.
Using the digital touch screen board can arouse the student's interest. Due to the concrete image of multimedia, the combination of movement and movement, and the combination of sound and color, it can be properly used to turn abstract into the concrete, mobilize the synergistic effect of students' various senses, solve the content that is difficult for teachers to speak clearly and students to understand, so as to effectively realize elaboration, highlight the key points and break through the difficult points.
