Abstract

Living in a digital age is rapidly changing the face of early childhood education. This presentation provides the findings from a study that rates the top 50 Apps most downloaded and/or ranked as a top application for use by families specifically for their young child. The applications were rated as to their alignment with developmentally appropriate practice as posited by NAEYC and the Fred Rogers Center. The applications were also rated based on the Early Childhood Educational Technology Evaluation Toolkit developed by McManis & Gunnewig (2012).
