Abstract

This paper outlines the results a three year national research project which investigated a pedagogy for multiliteracies and ICT in early childhood education in disadvantaged communities. The results of the study indicated that the integration of ICT and a multiliteracies framework enabled teachers in preschools and the first year of school to build on the strengths and lived experiences of children to plan for effective learning outcomes and support the positive transition to school.
