Dr Joanne Orlando
Dr Joanne Orlando is a leading expert in the field of children and technology. In particular, her work focuses on the teaching, learning and social effects of children's uses of technology. Joanne examines this focus across all ages (early childhood, primary, high school and young adults) at school, in the home and social spaces.


In this module, you’ll examine the role of information technology in a high-quality curriculum for young children. Dr. Joanne Orlando (University of Western Sydney) explores how IT tools can support existing teaching and learning methods, and how incorporating technology can open new opportunities for children and adults to explore together.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • how technology can extend the ways children work with, develop and represent their ideas
  • how educators can use technology to expand the resources available to support learning, and
  • why there are no hard and fast rules for how and when technology should be used in early childhood learning.

Once you’ve finished the module, you’ll be able to download and save:

  • your answers to the reflective questions
  • a certificate of completion.

Suitable for early childhood education and care professionals at all stages of their careers. This module will take an estimated one hour to complete.


Completing Techonology in Early Childhood will contribute 1 hour of PD addressing standard 2.6.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
