Who We Are
ECEtech.net is a membership community built from the collaboration of two experienced early childhood educators who saw a need for practical inspiration, ideas, and resources for exploring technology implementation in preschool settings. Karen Nemeth and Fran Simon are the founders of ECEtech.net and Co-Authors of Digital Decisions: Choosing the Right Technology Tools for Early Childhood Education, (Spring, 2012, Gryphon House).
Over the past several years, as technology has become more prevalent in early education settings, and we participated in the “to-tech or not-to-tech” debate we often found ourselves at a loss for good examples of best practice. We decided to do something about it! We envision a community to which our colleagues can turn for inspiration and guidance about using technology in developmentally appropriate settings and to which everyone can contribute.
Over the coming months, you will see this community evolve and grow with additional unbiased resources and opportunities for interactivity. This is just the beginning of what we expect to be a portal by early childhood educators with a passion for technology, and for early childhood educators who are dedicated to only the best for the children and families in their programs.
