About our community
Founded in January 2012, ECEtech.net is a community for early childhood educators who want to explore the practical side of technology use in preschool settings. It is a collaboration between two technology-minded early childhood education experts, Karen Nemeth and Fran Simon, who believe that teaching and learning in early education settings can be enhanced by supporting the developmentally appropriate use of educational technology. We set out to provide resources, actionable ideas, reliable information about the range of digital options. Over time, you will see the site grow to provide concrete information from the lens of practiced early childhood educators, about how to select technology tools, and how to integrate technology into early childhood classrooms and programs.
We were inspired to launch this community by people just like you! As we connected with the field with our thoughts about using technology in the classroom, we heard from hundreds of teachers and administrators who told us they needed more ideas and guidance about classroom technology. It was a message that was loud and clear.
We are just getting started. As we grow, you will see more interactivity, tools, and forms that will help you weave technology tools into your daily practice, right alongside the markers, paint, crayons, blocks, and other materials in your classroom. And we’ll be here to celebrate your successes.
We invite you to sign up to become a member (it’s FREE) so you can stay involved and connected.
