Abstract

This paper explores the use of iPads in a nursery setting, particularly to promote mark-making. Mark-making is important to help children develop pen control and writing skills. With the increase in the use of technology to support learning in both mainstream and specialist schools, this paper is an important glimpse into the challenges and benefits of introducing iPads into early years settings. Although this is a case study, it provides useful information on some of the reservations and difficulties staff came across over the course of the study. The results of this case study are overall very positive and the authors suggest further research that would add to this area. This paper will be of interest to staff working in school settings and parents of children with autism.
