Abstract


  • Mobile technologies are making inroads in many aspects of education. The potential of

    many of these devices is being explored in a range of educational environments but early

    childhood educators are not commonly early adopters of these new technologies. This paper

    examines the process and impact of iPods on these students¿ creation of original digital

    stories to support their understanding of how young children learn. The pedagogical

    approach is described in detail together with observations on the process, lessons learned,

    and extensions of the activity into other discipline areas.
