Technology: Changing the research base on young children


Technology has changed the potential for research of young children dramatically. Technology has allowed researchers to capture nuances of children's interactions such as eye movement in infants, heart rate, and physiological reactions that researcher's could never accurately track without the new technologies. Understanding the role of technology and the evidence of children's development has opened new ideas about the capabilities of children. Teachers need to understand how these technologies are being used and how researchers support learning and development based on this new approach to information collection with young children. © 2012, IGI Global.
