The Early Learning Experts
During the summer I wrote about an initiative launched by a group of educators and interested others working to found a Special Interest Group (SIG) for ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) to focus on the intentional, developmentally appropriate, and powerful use of technologies with early learners.
It is with great pleasure I share that ISTE has just approved the Special Interest Group (SIG) named Early Learning and Technology. The mission is as follows: “SIGELT is an advocate for developmentally appropriate technology use in early learning settings. SIGELT promotes and facilitates the advancement of meaningful technology integration in teaching and learning experiences for young children. SIGELT connects the early learning community with one another to explore and implement developmentally appropriate, high-quality, balanced, and relevant use of technologies with young children in all early learning and educational settings (birth to age eight).”

These two seem to have more in common in preparing for the disruption in higher education that is already beginning to happen. Embed the image above on your site Via: Online Universities Blog...
