Abstract: Electronic forms of documentation offer children and teachers opportunities for review and reflection, and provide public evidence of learning. This session will offer a unique approach to guiding early childhood educators in the use of multiple forms of technology to document learning. The use of electronic portfolios, digital stories and video clips will also be explored and participants will be encouraged to share other techniques for making both children’s and teachers’ learning visible through the creative use of technology.
