Technology

The technology available to the children, families and teachers at the Center is state-of-the-art. Teachers can observe, record and document children engaged in curriculum projects. These images and video allow for the collection and reflection on children’s growth and development over time and provide a wonderful opportunity for sharing with families. Children are developing skills as problem solvers, risk takers and creative thinkers as they interact with the educational technology available in the classroom.

Faculty and Eastern students have opportunity to observe the classrooms in action and reflect on these observations within their classroom/lecture setting. Distance learning projects also highlight the Center and classroom experiences providing professional development opportunities across Connecticut and beyond.

Technology-based initiatives in professional development, teacher preparation, research, and advocacy highlight the Center and classroom experiences. The center serves as a hub for innovation in Connecticut, a site for the design and study of new approaches to improving the lives of children and families.
