Elmhurst Academy incorporates thoughtful use of technology to engage children in key skills such as play, self-expression, and computational thinking which will support later success across all academic disciplines and help maintain young children’s natural curiosity.
We work to incorporate developmentally appropriate use of technology to help young children grow and learn. We encourage families and our teachers to play an active role. Early learners can use technology to explore new worlds, make believe, and actively engage in fun and challenging activities. They can learn about technology and technology tools and use them to play, solve problems, and role play.
We strive to appropriately use technology with young child by providing guidance and modeling. Through these techniques, technology can complement or extend learning in ways not easily achieved otherwise.
“Digital technology is changing the world, and we should embrace its power for the new ways it can support creativity and social interaction.” -Selwyn
