Tech Tools & Apps for Kindergarten Teachers

Tech Tools & Apps for Kindergarten Teachers
At the age of 4-6 years, we’ve struggled to learn A-B-Cs. But now the time has come for our next generation to breeze through out of it. Schools are getting incredible progress in their teaching after the youngsters began using the iPads.
By seeing this progress, so many schools are now approving iPad to computers for every kindergartner. iPad will have lot of apps used for learning, books to read, so, providing this tech tool, is absolutely something schools must do... iPads are smaller, having less weight, and are easier to carry... suit to every individual.

Educational Technology with Early Learners
http://www.naeyc.org/yc/article/finding-education-in-educational-technology
Finding the Education in Educational Technology with Early Learners
While the literature establishes the use of educational technology and positive outcomes for children (see reviews by Glaubke 2007; McCarrick & Li 2007; Penuel et al. 2009), it also indicates that technology needs to (1) be developmentally appropriate for children, (2) include tools to help teachers implement the technology successfully, and (3) be integrated into the classroom and curriculum (see Clements & Sarama 2003; Glaubke 2007; NAEYC & Fred Rogers Center 2012).
In this article, we will discuss these criteria and provide a practical plan, examples, and a tool for evaluating, using, and integrating educational technology in early childhood programs....

AlphaBaby
http://alphababy.sourceforge.net/
My kids love to play with the computer. Unfortunately, they also have the habit of renaming my hard drive to "axlfkaj".
So, I wrote AlphaBaby so they could safely use the Mac without inflicting too much damage!
AlphaBaby lets even infants and toddlers have fun playing with the computer.
Every time a key is pressed or the mouse is clicked, a letter or shape is drawn. Sounds can be played every time something is drawn. Your own sounds and pictures can also be used.
AlphaBaby helps kids to learn letters, plus provides a safe environment for kids to have fun "typing" on the keyboard! Both an application and screen saver version of AlphaBaby are provided.

BabySplat (free download)
http://www.syntap.com/products_babysplat.htm
BabySplat
BabySplat is a free, open-source MS Windows program you can use to give your kids something to do when you step away from an unprotected computer.
Your kids can bang on the keyboard and as keys are pressed shapes and sounds appear on the screen which will (hopefully) safeguard other work you are doing on the computer, or at least distract them long enough for you to grab them away.
This program was inspired by Justin R. Cohen's BabySmash, written years ago for the Mac.

ICT in the Early Years

ICT in the Early Years
This web site was started as a result of requests from Early Years practitioners for more help with planning for ICT.
It provides you with the tools you will need to audit your ICT and has supporting documents and examples to help you plan for and develop ICT in your setting.
The principles for learning for the Early Years Foundation Stage are at the heart of our practice. The audit for ICT is therefore based on these principles for learning. You can audit your ICT by following each commitment to the principle, or you can go directly to the supporting documents that are listed above the commitments.
