Welcome to the latest edition of Little Learners
In this issue we put the
spotlight on growing up with technology.
There are lots of ways to introduce
technology into your nursery which can help children develop a wide range of skills and broaden their understanding of the world.
Look out for our simple and very effective STEM and STEAM activities for little ones that don’t
need to break the bank – try making a pom pom drop, fruit boat or a
straw rocket. We’ve also included our top resources for early years construction – just add imagination!
Too young to code? – We’ll be exploring how to introduce the concepts of computing to even the littlest of learners (no computer
required!). We’ll also look at using cameras, tablets, music and light panels to learn how things work.
This issue we’ve put some exciting resources to the test – including augmented reality resources and LEGO® Education STEAM Park. Our thanks to all the nurseries who were involved.
We hope you enjoy the magazine!
