Technology in the Kindergarten Classroom

Instructor: Larisa Popova
Using technology in a kindergarten classroom is not only a fun addition to students' learning process but also a very vital and valuable part of education. This lesson can give you more ideas how to implement technology into your everyday teaching.

Technology in the Classroom

As a kindergarten teacher you have probably wondered about the kind of technology you can use in your classroom. While your students are comfortable with technology, they often need someone's assistance and guidance while using a computer or other electronic device. Don't worry, there is variety of things that are available to make your teaching process easier and fun.

As a teacher, you can make your first step into the world of classroom technology by using simple things like mp3 players, smart phones, and digital cameras. Desktop or laptop computers, tablets, document cameras, LCD projectors, smart boards and online media can be the second step to integrating technology in your classroom. While some pieces of technology like smart phones and LCD projectors are better to be used by teachers, the other ones are good for the students.

Developing Lessons/Assessments

Even though kindergarten lesson planning might be very simple, the use of technology can make this process more enjoyable and productive. Making playlists of songs that can be used in the classroom can allow easier access during class and for tweaking quickly. Taking pictures and creating Power Point lessons or slide shows is a great visual to engage students. Printing wall charts, posters, classroom books or putting together a classroom album is a beautiful addition to any classroom.
