I am an early years practitioner, working with a group of learners age between 3-5 years. This year my school got ETAC i.e Education Technology across Curriculum. We faced a lot of teething problems. A course was held to help teachers develop their understanding about meaningful integration of technology. Students were given exposure to develop their confidence to handle equipment responsibly as well working on computers, net books or IWB. Still I believe a lot has to be done. I would like to have an insight if any one of you faced any barriers to fully embed ICT into teaching and learning and how you people overcome those issues?

Hi samy,
I work with my Kindergarten teachers on integrating technology in their classrooms, and yes, it can be challenging at times. I think you're on the right track with exposure to and comfort with a variety of tools being primary. My teachers make a lot of use of centers, so frequently technology is involved as one of the centers the students rotate through.

I strongly recommend checking out Matt Gomez's blog. He's a Kindergarten teacher that makes excellent use of technology in his classroom. He's sure to spark some ideas.
