Okulöncesi Eğitimde Bilgisayarın Yeri ve Rolü

Öz Giderek daha karmaşık ve teknoloji ile donatılmış hale gelen bir dünyada, eğitimin her alanında olduğu gibi okulöncesi eğitimde de bilgisayar teknolojiler, öğretim programlarına dâhil ediliyor. Ancak eğitsel tüm araç ve gereçlerde olduğu gibi bilgisayarın da tek başına olumlu bir katkı yapması beklenemez. Bilgisayar teknolojilerinin okul öncesi eğitimdeki yeri ve rolü araştırılıp sorgulanmalı ve bütüncül bir yaklaşım çerçevesinde değerlendirilerek izlenmesi gereken yol tespit edilmelidir. Bu makalede bilgisayar teknolojilerinin eğitimdeki yerine dair güncel yaklaşımlar ve okul öncesi eğitimdeki uygulama biçimleri gözden geçirildikten sonra okul öncesi eğitimdeki rolü tartışılıyor; bazı örnek uygulamalar tarif edilerek eğitimcilere pratik tavsiyelerde bulunuluyor.
