About the Author

Chip Donohue, Ph.D., is Dean of Distance Learning and Continuing Education, and Director, TEC Center, Erikson Institute, USA.


"This well researched book certainly provides much food for thought for early years educators, and it challenges us all to reflect, question and research the possibilities technology and digital media bring to children's learning and how they impact on their development." - Barbara Isaacs, Montessori International "Technology and Digital Media in the Early Years is a treasure; the content is grounded in learning theory and covers a wide range of technologies and educational practices. An added benefit is the incredible supply of digital and print resources. This book should be required reading for parents, teachers, media developers, and policy makers who are responsible for the next generation's education." - Barbara T. Bowman, Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Development, Erikson Institute, USA "At last, a comprehensive, intelligent resource for teachers, teacher educators, and the field in general that discusses both the here and now and the potential of technology and digital media in early childhood education. While offering a snapshot of the ever-changing digital world of devices, software, and websites, Donohue and colleagues have, more importantly, gifted the field with a structured, multidimensional framework that is the clearest path to date for professional decision-making about technology and digital media choices that enhance learning for young children. There are no boogeymen in the closet snatching childhood from the young. It is possible for every child to have access when teachers are supported in their application of developmentally appropriate practices to yet another dynamic educational tool." - Jerlean E. Daniel, Early Childhood Consultant (NAEYC Executive Director from 2010 to 2013)
