Constructing Technology Projects with Young Children : Four Detailed Case Studies of Mounting Constructivist Learning Projects Using Dimple Technologies for Young Children

By Kerry Perandis, Sue Muir, Melissa Kemp, Helle Bristowe and Michael Ryan


The work by graduate teachers in this volume represent intentional design of learning experiences using technology for Early Childhood settings. They were given a two-part design task: a sequence of lessons organised around a themed project; and the collection of resources to support such activities. The project had to be constructive in nature where the children built objects and representations that were meaningful to them. The excellent works presented here offer a range of approaches that would be suitable in a variety of contexts. Because they are reasoned, these projects offer flexibility in implementation along with confidence that they would be effective
