The EYFS asks that practitioners plan opportunities for active exploration and play that lead to the use of creative and critical thinking skills. In order to be able to create and think critically, children should be encouraged to use their imaginations and act autonomously. Practitioners need to have the confidence to step back and allow the children to take the lead. This involves setting up open-ended learning opportunities that get children asking questions, investigating possibilities, looking for solutions, making decisions and coming up with creative ideas. What's more, it means tapping into the realm of childhood fantasy and appealing to their sense of adventure. Working in this way presents all kind of possibilities for exciting and stimulating learning experiences that will surprise and excite both children and practitioners. This book is resource bank full of inventive ideas for early years practitioners who want to fire young children's imaginations and get them talking and thinking. Part of the highly successful 50 Fantastic series including 50 Fantastic ideas for teaching phonics, 50 Fantastic ideas for maths outdoors and 50 Fantastic ideas for squidgy stuff.

In a world that divides us, technology creates connection. Cell phones, e-mail, digital cameras, personal Web sites—they all join us, however tenuously, to what we value. Is connectivity what we’re willing to pay for? Should technology be our servant or a tool that helps us do other things? What can we really learn from Napster? What would intelligent standards for touch-screen user interface look like? How does technology evolve, and what drives that evolution? For Dan Bricklin, technology cannot exist independently of the lives and needs of those who use it. For more than a decade he has shared his thoughts on this essential interdependence in blogs, podcasts, and essays. This volume compiles those observations, putting together case histories and new reflections for a fascinating study of how people and technology affect one another. Whether you’re a software developer or a student of human nature, you’ll find yourself drawn into this most intriguing discourse—because you are its subject.
