The digital camera is an ideal tool for introducing children to new technology and improving their IT skills. Try these fun activities to inspire their imagination and use of a camera
Digital cameras have transformed our approach to photography. You can now take as many pictures as you want and discard the ones you don’t like! Most early years settings keep images as a visual record of children’s experiences or evidence of their achievements.
In the hands of young children, cameras are also a powerful tool for promoting all areas of learning. They help nurture curiosity and interest while at the same time introducing the use of everyday technology in a meaningful way.
