Creative ICT in Early Years, Leeds

It's not all about the 'tweens', using new technologies creatively with toddlers develops the thinking and language skills of little ones.

This month, I completed a creative ICT residency in two Early Years settings in Leeds.

The project drew heavily on the Reggio Emilia approach of imaginative child led open-ended play that leads to deeper learning for young minds.

Using toy loudspeakers, FLIP video cameras, easi-speak mics, cardboard, fabric scraps and tiny LED lights, we transformed indoor and outdoor spaces into magical places.

This exciting opportunity to use ICT in an unpredictable and experimental way was supported by ARTFORMS Leeds.
