Thank you fellow practitioners for all your support and words of encouragement

 

Could I pick your brains (few ideas) on innovative ways of applying ICT in foundation stage to entice children who are not effectively accessing this area. Impact for practitioners (links with EYFS) etc

 

Could you guys recommend any book or resources as I would like to compile and action plan (linked to ICT (KUW) as an area of improvement within my setting.

 

I would value your support please.

Its worth remembering ICT can be incorporated in a large number of areas in the setting. It is always worht exploring how to use it in several areas..other than with computer.

 

Many on the forum recommend the Little book series.. perhaps this one may be of help

Little book of ICT

Oh and these too:

http://www.staff.ucsm.ac.uk/rpotter/ict/ea...early-years.htm

 

And a book:

Supporting ICT in the Early Years (Supporting Early Learning) (Paperback)

by John Siraj-Blatchford (Author), David Whitebread (Author)

Book Description

The primary aim of this new volume in the Supporting Early Learning series is to help readers understand how very young children (from birth to six) develop an early awareness, and subsequently develop their knowledge, skills and understandings of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The rapid growth of ICT has prompted concerns among parents, educators and policy-makers over the suitability of many educational applications, and electronic toys, for young children. However, evidence is presented to show that the use of ICT by young children is compatible with the principles of a developmentally appropriate curriculum (DAC). In fact the authors argue that used imaginatively, many applications of ICT can make a significant and unique contribution to children's social and cognitive development.

 

The authors show how parents and other carers, teachers, and other professionals are already providing a rich learning environment in this area of experience.

 

If you go to this on Amazon it gives links to other books and resources at the bottom.

 

Hope this helps.

Dear NannyMcphie,

 

Wow! what an impressive list of book lists suprisingly the Uni library did stock some of the books. I found the Mary Hayes et al book very helpful and useful (paticularly when listing theoritical propectives). Thank you ever so for all your help.

 

Sorry I did not respond sooner. I had a major PC crisis lost 3 1/2 weeks worth of work (So I had 2 essays to russle up in less than a week). Plus a I had the dreaded man flu (you know what I mean).

 

Hoping you are having a restful easter break.
