Beyond letters, numbers and screens: NB, technologies, numeracy and early childhood education: A report for teachers

Grieshaber, Susan J., Yelland, Nicola, Matters, Gabrielle, & Cook, Tony (2005) Beyond letters, numbers and screens: NB, technologies, numeracy and early childhood education: A report for teachers. Queensland University of Technology.


This project investigates the combination of the NB (Luke et al., 2000; QSE -2010, nd), information technologies, and numeracy learning and teaching in the first three years of schooling. The development of pedagogies and curriculum that effectively integrate the NB, technologies and numeracy and which culminate in the production of more informed citizens goes some way towards addressing the important problem of designing new social futures (New London Group, 1996). New social and pedagogical futures are required for the 21st century and this project marks the beginning of this work in early childhood education.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
