Head Start Use of Technology, 2013-2014

Project Overview

The goal of the current task order is to better understand and assess how technology can be used to support and improve the quality of practice used by early childhood professionals who work directly with children and families.  This includes technology used to (a) support better individualization of services – whether those services are provided by teachers, home visitors, or family service workers, and (b) technology used to support the professional development of these direct services staff. The task order will include a review of the literature – both research studies and documents prepared by professional organizations – as well as conversations with experts in the field who have developed innovative approaches that utilize technology to improve early childhood professionals’ implementation of practices.
