Why technology?

Lincoln Elementary recognizes that children need guidance when it comes to engaging with technology in the classroom. For several years now, the U.S. Department of Education has provided official guidance on the use of technology with young children. 

The department sets out four guiding principles for using technology with early learners:

  1. Technology — when used appropriately — can be a tool for learning.
  2. Technology should be used to increase access to learning opportunities for all children.
  3. Technology may be used to strengthen relationships among parents, families, early educators and young children.
  4. Technology is more effective for learning when adults and peers interact or co-view with young children.
