Abstract

More and more, schools are purposefully utilizing technology in the classroom for learning. As the technology era expands, the age of those interacting with technology seems to be shrinking. Can children in preschool benefit from the use of instructional technology? Children are highly adaptable and learn at faster rates than adults. Their brains are wired for increased synthesis of complex operations such as speech acquisition and even technology. In what way(s) would they best learn from technology? What learning behaviors could help shape preschool curriculum? Examination of how students explore, navigate, and interact with technologies provides direction for best practices in teaching.
