Technology for family childcare has been an interesting Module. It explains how the STEM approach should be used in my Daycare setting. This approach allows children to expand on his or her imagination while touching feeling, exploring and problem solving. As I reflect back on some of the activities used to demonstrate positive uses for STEM the Low and High Tech tools are useful in different instances. They support critical thinking.
In my program, I plan to implement the Light and Shadow activity to see how the children will react to seeing their shadow illuminating from a wall or sheet and trying to catch their shadow with their hands and trying to problem solve how it all works. Cameras are a great tool to use when exploring outdoors. The children can take photos of what they see and we can print the photos once we are back inside and discuss what we saw and what we did asking open ended question.
