ICT - using tablets to support learning

Apps, and technology overall, are another tool for learning. Children get the most out of playing with apps if they are well chosen by you and if you play together.

When looking at apps and thinking how they can support your child’s early literacy and numeracy, we suggest that you think about the following questions:

Engagement Features

Does the app have at least two of the following features?

Lots of fun The app is fun and makes children feel included and empowered, through the response of the screen, e.g. touches/tapping/swiping etc.
Play together The app allows the child to play with others either in person or virtually.
Interactive The app has goals, rules and gives clear feedback or encouragement when the child engages with it. These goals and rules can be adjusted to suit the child.
Loads to do The app gives children different activities, characters and stories to be involved with
Creative The app lets children use their imagination, make new stories or change what is happening.
Make it your own The app can be changed to relate to the child i.e. adding voices, pictures or by creating their own characters.
