Technological Tots

This September, I had the most pleasant and enriching experience working at Meadowbrook Elementary School in Hillsdale,NJ. I was assigned to the Pre-K room not knowing exactly what to expect.

The birth of this article began on day two of school when I happened to notice whenever the teacher used any sort of technology in her teaching; the children would sit there-awestruck. Technology was integrated into my Kindergarten class only a few years prior with much success, and I wondered if the Pre-K would be any different.I have always been a major proponent of the infusion of technology into the class curriculum and have written various articles on the topic; but to see these four year olds be as attentive as tenth graders in the presence of technology, I just had to do a case study and share what I observed.
