Playful Learning Approaches to Early Childhood Technology Education
Tufts University’s Early Childhood Technology (ECT) certificate program is designed for educators and practitioners working with young children in prekindergarten through second grade in diverse educational settings, such as schools, museums, libraries, and daycares. This three-course blended learning program introduces the teaching of technology and engineering in early childhood in a developmentally appropriate way that focuses on playful learning. Additionally, the program develops students’ teaching practices and assessment methods, and their understanding of student learning through integrated curricula that include the arts and literacy, as well as STEM. Participants who complete the program will be prepared to implement high-quality technology and engineering activities in diverse learning environments. A virtual information session to learn more about the ECT certificate program will take place at 7 p.m. (ET) on October 14, 2020.
