Fostering early literacy in early childhood education using iPads

This article reports on one early childhood centre’s initiative to use iPads to address the emotional competencies required in literacy learning, in particular motivation and engagement, for a small group of boys. The teachers saw these boys as having many talents and interests—they were described as “our wonderful construction boys”. However, the teachers noticed that they rarely voluntarily interacted with books and storytelling or got involved with activities that were overtly literacy focused.
