technology is rapidly changing the ways
we live our lives and interact with the
world. It’s also changing how you teach.

technology can enhance your classroom’s
complete curriculum and assessment and
help you create and capture meaningful
experiences, support inquiry, and expand
your classroom’s walls. this comprehensive
framework will help you select and use
a variety of technology and interactive
media tools in your classroom—including
digital cameras, audio recorders, webcams,
publication and presentation tools, and
multi-touch mobile devices.

reflecting Technology in Early Childhood
Programs, the joint position statement of the
National association for the education of
Young Children and the Fred rogers Center,
Teaching in the Digital Age includes
• developmentally appropriate and
effective strategies to use technology
to facilitate children’s learning
• links to video clips that provide a
deeper look at how these practices are
used in real classrooms
• Forms to help you plan, reflect on, and
evaluate how you use technology to
help children learn
“as a gifted classroom teacher and technology
innovator, Brian preaches what he practices. he’s
given educators a rare gift—a book that clearly
connects child development and developmentally
appropriate practices with new technology and offers
an invitation to explore, play, and learn. this is a
book to experience, not just to read. It’s full of real
classroom stories and photos, practical tips, technology
recommendations, and Qr codes that link to video
clips and resources. along the way, you’ll be engaged,
encouraged, and gently nudged toward intentional,
effective, and integrated use of technology in your
classroom—and you’ll really enjoy the journey.”
