At The West Finchley Preschool we use technology to help support our children’s learning development. The current generation of young children have been born into a technological world that is progressing at an incredible pace and which will become a key part of their futures. We believe that it is important to include the use of technology in our curriculum for our children over the age of two.
We use tablets and touch screen TVs to help teach our children, letters and sounds, colours, numbers and shapes. They are a great tool to use when showing children, the works of artists and to illustrate concepts that staff might be talking with the children about. Our touch screens are a great place for children to practice air writing and letter formation using their whole bodies. Use of technology is for age appropriate lengths of time and for a purpose. If used appropriately the use of technology ignites curiosity, promotes problem solving skills.
