Also look at how the principles of the EYFS can inform our practice in developing uses of technology in the Early Years.

Would you like ideas for resources?

The Resources area is full of training and support materials to help you develop effective uses of technology within your settings.

This website has arisen out of development and practice of using technology in the Early Years at Homerton Children's Centre.

We now have a book available!
