Balanced, Current, and Relevant, Part I, by Tess Prendergast

Balanced, Current, and Relevant, Part I, by Tess Prendergast | Galiano Island Books | Scoop.it

Question: Why is research about digital technology, young children and libraries so hard to find?Answer: Because it has not even been written yet.

When children’s librarians approach the topic of digital technology’s place in early childhood, I think we need ways to “converge” what we learn from the available research with our own expertise and mandates. Despite the fact that we are information professionals, this convergence, in this divided field, is not at all an easy task. I am a children’s librarian with 17 years on the job. I am also halfway through a doctorate in early literacy, but I don’t claim to have all the answers or even any of the answers! What I do claim, however, is that what I have found to be most helpful and informative to me as an early literacy researcher has come from mostly qualitative research in the field of early childhood education. A lot of qualitative research tends not to “prove” anything because that is not its aim. It provides illustrative data drawn from real people’s lives, tied to important themes and issues that concern us all. We can and should learn from this kind of research as we move towards the goal of creating our own.
