Let’s recall [5 min]
Using think-pair-share, write down words / phrases that you associate SEED with. Input your discussion in the Google Docs Rationale Behind SEED SEED is the acronym for Strategies for Effective Engagement and Development of Pupils in Primary Schools. To help primary schools think through how they can further enhance their foundation-year teaching programmes, pedagogy and assessment approaches to better engage young learners. To facilitate and help teachers reflect on their instructional methods and to devise pedagogies suited to the unique needs and abilities of their pupils. "I am four and a half..." Let's watch this video Engage Me or Enrage Me- By Marc Pensky Literature Review – Too Young? Fool’s Gold: A Critical Look at Computer in Childhood
~ C.Cordes, E.Miller (2000) Fool’s Gold: A Critical Look at Computer in Childhood, Alliance for Childhood

…ICT in early children education has yet achieved the same status that it enjoys in the education of older children.
~Kankaanranta, M., & Kangassalo, M (2003). Information and Communication Technologies in Finnish Early Childhood Environments. Childhood Education 79(5)

…from two to about twelve…mental operations develop but are restricted to those that bear on manipulable objects…Piaget maintains that these stage are relatively immune to acceleration through training
~Zajong, A (1984), Computer Pedagogy? Questions Concerning the New Educational Technology, Computer Pedagogy Vol 85(4)

Educators suggested that computer may pose a threat to social development.
~E.Woods, J.Specht, T.Willoughby, J. Mueller (2008)
Integrating Computers in Early Childhood, Integrating Computer Technology In Early Children Education Environments: Issues Raised by Early Childhood Educators, The Alberta Journal of Educational Research

Computers supplement and do not replace highly valued childhood activities … it adds another dimension to concrete exploration and expression…
~ Pak Tee, Ng (2003), Pre-school Children and IT, ASCD Review VII(3 “(age-appropriate ICT tools)…provide necessary hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and early childhood curriculum preparedness that children need to adapt to the world of technology… providing the right balance teaching children how technology words and letting them explore how things work on their own can begin with such devices”
~M.Frazel (2007) Tech for Tinies: How Young is Too Young to Use Computer?, Beyond the Horizon 26(3)

“…Computer assisted instruction may never replace the book and the blackboard but one should be aware that they are more accessible by young children, who learn better with pictures and sounds, and the proper use of appropriate programs could make a considerable difference.”
~N.Vernadakis, A.Avgerinos, E.Tsitskari, and E.Zachopouloul (2005) The use of computer assisted instruction in preschool education: Making Teaching Meaningful, Early Childhood Education Journal 33(2)

“…findings indicate that, where computers are present…(programs) focus on early literacy and mathematics…providing a positive learning experience for young children, in turn, are highly motivated and keen to exercise their emergent information and communication technology skills.”
~D.R.Mitchell & C.A. Dunbar (2006) Learning and Devlopment in the Nursery Setting: The Value of promoting emergent information and communication technology skills, Child Care in Practice 12(3) summaries of findings are presented from empirical research project to illustrate that the effective use of ICT in schools can not only influence learning outcomes in terms of the quality of works produced by students but also predisposes them to engagement with mathematical ideas and affords the opportunity to learn in new and dynamic ways that were not possible without technologies”
~N.Yelland (2001) Teaching and Learning with information and communciation technology for numeracy in the early childhood and primary years of schooling, Research and Evaluation Branch

“…the contribution of computer-based learning materials to the acquisition of early reading skills of at-risk children in this study is very promising.”
~D.Mioduser, H.Tur-Kaspa& I.Leitner (2000) Journal of Computer Assisted Learning 16, 54-63

“It is my recommendation that computers be introduced to young children when they are about three years of age”
~ Haugland, S.W (1999) What role should technology play in young children’s learning? Part 1. Young Children 54(6), 26-31 “ The caveats, however, are that the computer technology must be age-appropriate to the learner, reflect the skills promoted through early children education environments, allow for ease of use without accompanied by sufficient training and support for the educator.”
