Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong believes in the use of educational technology to support teaching and learning.
Beebots are programmable, colourful toys introduced to children at an early age – they are great fun but also lay the foundation of coding, control and directional language. Science – or “Understanding the World” in EYFS terms – is another prominent fixture in the MCPS curriculum, which allows for play-based, multi-sensory learning.
When used wisely, technology and media can support learning and relationships. Enjoyable and engaging shared experiences that optimize the potential for children’s learning and development can support children’s relationships both with adults and their peers.
