Conference Paper


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • Gestural Interface Technology (GIT) has

    changed the way technology is adopted in classrooms

    for all ages. The accessibility of control through

    touch means that technology such as Apple’s iPad

    can be used in early childhood education.

    In this paper, we introduce a framework for

    fully-engaged communication, developed from

    educational pedagogy and critical engagement in

    information systems. The intersection of these

    dimensions creates a view of a GIT lifeworld

    approach which allows it to be used to understand

    multiple layers of engagement that exist within an

    early childhood education environment.
