Using technology to enhance early childhood learning: The 100 days of school project

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study describes the ways in which 6 teachers in an urban elementary school in the United States integrated technology within a common and familiar theme among lower grade (K-2) students, named the 100 Days of School. It also investigates the impact of technology integration on student learning. The findings of the study indicate that teachers were successful in integrating technology within the 100 Days of School project in developmentally appropriate ways. Results of the study also demonstrate that use of technology promoted increased student motivation, enhanced learning in areas such as literacy, mathematics, and social studies, fostered social interaction, and built student confidence level. Critical factors that affected the success of the project included teacher professional development and administrative support. Findings of this study have implications for schools and districts interested in infusing technology in primary education.
