Submitted Assignment from the year 2018 in the subject Education - Educational Tests & Measurements, University of Education (Early childhood Education), course: Contempoary issues in early childhood education, language: English, abstract: Contemporary issues are events, ideas, opinions or topics in a given subject area that are relevant to the present day. In the area of early childhood education, contemporary issues are issues that have come to light recently and are relevant to the present day. ICT is becoming a ubiquitous component of the physical and social worlds occupied by young children. It is an important part of the private and work lives of most people, including those who support young children’s learning and development, whether as parents, family members, caregivers, or early childhood educators. It is often argued in the literature that children’s early childhood education experiences should reflect and connect with their experiences in the wider world. Therefore, ICT matters in early childhood education, because it already has an effect on the people and the environments that surround young children’s learning and well-being. There is strong consensus across the literature that, it is timely for the role and potential of ICT for the early childhood education sector to be critically examined, to guide future development and decision-making in this area. Since the inception of early childhood education program in 2004, there have several subjects of concern to ensure the effectiveness of the program and since the modern world is fast-paced and dynamic, these issues keeps coming into light and as early childhood stakeholders we cannot forgo these issues without discussing its relevance and effectiveness in advancing early childhood education in Ghana.

This important new text seeks to support school teachers in developing children's literacy skills through the use of information and communication technology. The editor and contributors indicate where we are at present and where we may be going in terms of learning literacy using ICT, basing their findings on research evidence and their own extensive experience in education. Specific chapters deal with literacy learning in schools; national literacy strategies as exemplified within the National Literacy Programme; the effectiveness of software; connections with oracy; and the use of the internet. Whilst the contributors note that ICT has much to offer in terms of providing valuable support to learners, they also stress that the context where this learning takes place is vitally important and that technology alone can never take the place of good classroom practice.

This book considers the cognitive nature of courses connected with ICT or using ICT as an integral part of the course, including some views on the associated learning and teaching styles. Which factors lead to learning outcomes and are these intended or fortuitous? Factors may include ones specific to particular subject areas and their relationship with ICT, motivation associated with ICT usage, the interest which teachers, pupils and students who enjoy using ICT bring to the learning context. Recent developments in the use of ICT, particularly in an educational context where us of ICT has become one of the learning strategies in the portfolio of options teachers possess, have meant that the pedagogic usage has become more important generally. The focus of this book is on the curricular use of ICT and so course evaluation and design are the main contents of each chapter. In this sense the curriculum becomes the cognitive site of learning. Most other books look at specific pedagogic uses rather than the debate between subject and skill learning. Also, a government research paper indicates that thinking skills may well become the new focus for the next phase of development.

The book describes how they successfully managed to plan and teach integrated themes across the age-range in the context of the requirements of the Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. Each case study has a different focus: * science, design and technology *' the arts' - including an ICT strand * 'the humanities' - including a physical education strand English and mathematics dimensions run through each theme.The book is alive with discussion of children's art, language, drama and music, captured as field notes, writing, drawing, and as video tape. Each chapter concludes with suggestions of ways in which readers can develop the ideas in their own contexts. This book will be invaluable reading for students on Early Years courses, Early Years practitioners, and tutors and mentors in early childhood education.
