As an Early Years practitioner in a school where technology integration has recently been initiated across the curriculum. I would like some professional input regarding the possible barriers that prevents the early years setting from being able to fully embed ICT.

Hi Robina, I'd love to provide some input, though it would be from a US perspective. Is this your school?


Can you tell us more about your program? Specifically, I'm curious about your statement "technology integration has recently been initiated across the curriculum." What does that look like? What has changed or is changing?

There is some great research and thinking that can help frame this discussion. I'll lead off with two variations on a similar theme - matrices that show levels of technology adoption in different grades and different subjects.

The two I know about are Florida's and Ariizona's:

http://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/ (Florida)
http://www.azk12.org/tim/ (Arizona)

Both are good for different reasons, and both may offer some insight as to current and future practices at your school.

But again, tell us more, and we'll be better able to help.

Best, kj
