PLE Post Week 12

From watching these videos of different classrooms using technology I have been able to learn a couple of different reasons for the importance of technology when teaching young children. I think that the most important thing when it comes to teaching young children is to keep them interested. I think that since young kids have a hard time focusing on something for long periods of time it is so important to make sure that as a teacher, I am always keeping them focused on the subject. I have learned from these videos that as they are learning about one subject they continue to remain interested in it because they are using all types of technology and activities within the subject. They are able to remain excited because the teacher isn't keeping it mundane but is constantly switching up the different technologies and activities. From watching these videos I have learned that it may be a good idea to use different technologies for the different parts of the subject. It is ok to use the same subject so that the kids do understand what I am teaching, but is also ok to use different technologies while teaching that subject.
