Project Details

A Pilot Study - An Exploration of Children's Learning in Home in 21st Century.

In the last project titled: ‘An investigation of the environment and the teaching practice of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in preprimary education in Hong Kong, findings revealed that there were differences in learning experiences and teaching practice with ICT between profit and non-profit making preschools and also between kindergartens in different regions in Hong Kong. The research results of Alliance of Childhood (2004) on computer access and use revealed that children’s growth, development and learning are intimately linked with the use of new technologies in their home and school context. Thus, it is regarded as being important to study this phenomena in more depth This study follows the findings of the last project to explore the home learning environment of young children using ICT and the impact of parental involvement in these activities. Findings and recommendations will be made available to parents and early childhood teachers to help them to identify that different childhood experiences are in place and it may be necessary to observe young children so that we are able to reconceptualise their playful learning in 21st century.
