Welcome to the ECETech* Wiki!
This is a project of the
National Association for the Education of Young Children Technology and Young Children Interest Forum
Any ECE Educators knows: "Many hands does an easy job make."
So let's make a Wiki!
Anyone with an interest in young children and technology is welcome to join this interactive conversation. Please keep in mind that this is a non-commercial, non promotional effort, "for the good of our children." Because it is a Wiki, we can add material, smooth over rough writing or remove spam or commercial content together. We ask that you follow an informal
code of ethics
before you contribute material. This wiki was originally created by NAEYC Technology and Young Children Interest Forum members Warren Buckleitner and Bonnie Blagojevic to provide opportunities for our Interest Forum members to learn about and have a "hands-on" opportunity to try out new tech tools, such as wikis. Ad free hosting is provided by Wikispaces.

ECETECH Name and Identity
The term "ECEtech" is being used by different groups.
It was first used by the NAEYC Technology & Young Children Interest Forum group in 1993 when the ECEtech listserv was started. The NAEYC Technology & Young Children Interest forum used "ECETECH" again when starting the ECETech Diigo group (246 members as of April 2012), created to allow the group to more easily share articles and information.Warren and Bonnie started this wiki as a "sandbox project", calling it the ECETech Wiki, in January 2008, designating it as a free, non-commercial space (public wik)i for members of the NAEYC Technology Interest Forum. Non member are also welcome -- no person is turned away although you must ask for permission to join. Anyone else with an interest in sharing information related to children and technology.
In the Spring of 2012 a for-profit company owned by Fran Simon (working with Karen Nemeth) registered the domain name ECETech, at
as part of their consulting and webinar services. They also purchased and own the rights to ecetech.org and tweet using the ecetech tag.
It was agreed that full disclosure and identity would help protect the ecetech identity; a grownup way of saying "don't bite, let's use our words." In Bonnie's words "
I hope we can do what is often elusive, truly cooperate and collaborate as there is a lot to be done, often with limited resources. If we can tap the talent in the group (and continue to grow it), discuss and identify projects that are realistic for our volunteers, then hopefully the IF can continue to offer and work to improve resources, along with everyone's personal efforts, that will help the field."
