    I just love this book!

    Early Childhood Specialist wrote this book specifically for early childhood teachers who are teaching children in the three to eight year old age brackett. I found this book straightforward, user friendly and self-explanatory. I looked at all of the photos, illustrations, diagrams and discovered that they were very useful adult learning tools. I applied some of the computer strategies and now feel more comfortable and confident in using classroom computers as a teaching tool. From the teachings, I explored every essential piece of the classroom computer. It encouraged and guided me on how to integrate computers as a learning center in the regular learning environment and encouraged children's learning in a technological age. The book provided me with curricular approaches that offered a framework for classroom instruction and linked children's computer use with curriculum and assessment and also assisted me with the adoption of effective practices. This is a must have for Early Childhood classroom teachers who want to integrate their classrooms with appropriate computer usage.
