About The Webinar

Maximising Attainment through Technology in Early Years Settings

Webinar duration: 75 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide nursery managers, practitioners and support staff with a clearer understanding of how technology can be used to support children’s education and development in early years settings. 

According to Ofcom’s most recent research, a significant proportion of children are familiar with the online world by the time they start school: 17% of 5-year-olds in the UK have their own mobile phone, while as many as 50% already use messaging platforms. These figures underline that digital technology is a fundamental part of youngsters’ everyday life – and it can be a superb facilitator of learning and attainment if we understand how to incorporate it correctly at the early years stage. 

In this webinar, Dr Amy Bidgood, a lecturer in developmental psychology at the University of Salford, discusses how different elements of technology can promote learning, and how this can be achieved in the safest way possible for children of this formative age.

Learning Outcomes

  • Gaining an insight into how early years settings can use different types of digital media (such as e-books or video content) to support children’s learning and development

  • Appreciating the importance of both the content of the digital media being consumed and the context in which it is used

  • Evaluating some of the many different apps and websites available to enable better-informed decisions about which of them are most suitable for your aims

  • Identifying how children’s level of engagement with digital technology in their home environment can influence and inform your strategy for integrating device use in the setting

  • Recognising the key factors to be aware of when considering children’s safety in the context of their digital media use
