Technology

Technology is a central feature of the modern world children are growing up in. They are inundated with various machines and devices that serve a range of different purposes.

However, for children at Springwood Kindergarten, engaging with technology is more than simply playing games on devices. It involves using tools and technologies to support play, for enjoyment, to create, find out, communicate, share ideas and learning, inquire, investigate and solve problems.

Some examples include opportunities to use iPads to research their interests and questions and/or to take photos, create digital books and animations using drawings/paintings/photographs, code simple robots to move around spaces and investigate physics using simple machines with moving parts to name a few.

As children engage in activities such as these, they are developing skills and confidence to use a wide variety of tools, technologies and ICTs for a range of purposes.
