Presentation title
A Case Study on Early Childhood Educators’ Experiences in Using Digital Resources for Online Education in Malaysia.
Presentation abstract
Teaching and learning in early childhood education have predominantly been conducted in physical settings. Generally, this has been the norm for early childhood education since young children benefit from concrete materials and experiences. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, countries were compelled to implement online education including for early childhood. As a result of this drastic shift from traditional ways of teaching and learning to online education in early childhood, there is a pertinent need to explore early childhood educators’ experiences in using digital resources for online education. Past studies have highlighted the types of digital resources as well as how these impacted young children’s learning and engagement positively albeit in mostly physical classroom settings (Gillen and Kucirkova, 2018; Altun 2018; Van der Westhuizen, Hannaway, 2021). The aim of this study is to explore early childhood educators’ perspectives and experiences on the following questions: What were the digital resources used during online teaching & learning? How were the digital resources used during online teaching & learning? How did these digital resources support children’s engagement in online learning? The study employs a qualitative methodology which comprises document analysis of early childhood educators’ written lesson plans and self-reflections.
