Description

Crayons and iPads examines the use of digital technology in the early stages of child development, and the way in which learning techniques have evolved in classrooms across the world.


Harwood explores how tablets can be used to provoke, ignite and excite children's interest in the world around them, performing as accessible learning and instructional tools, and argues that it is through this engagement with technology that new discoveries are made and learning takes place.


Guiding readers through research-based insights into children's thinking, interactions and being, Crayons and iPads offers an important starting point upon which to build play and inquiry-based learning opportunities within early learning programs, and will appeal to both educators and researchers across child development, early years education, and digital literacy.

This is a very timely book, which looks at research on the potential and use of iPads in early years education. Harwood explores the evolution of digital technologies in the field of education across the world and explores how tablets, such has iPads, can be used to ignite and excite children's interest.
