Technology is an Indispensable Part of Near East Yeniboğaziçi Preschool Education.
As Near East Yeniboğaziçi Preschool, we effectively use technology, which is an indispensable part of education, to prepare our children for the future with a solid foundation.
In order to raise individuals who use technology efficiently, we start our computer education program from the preschool education center at the age groups of 3, 4 and 5 and continue it until the end of the fifth grade of primary school. It is among our goals to enable students to understand what purpose of the computer use is, how to turn on and turn off the computer, to recognize the basic units, and to gain manual skills for using the keyboard and the mouse. Grounding on concepts in various fields in the preschool curriculum, we continue to work in line with the subject included in the weekly programs of our classes.
While children are in the process of learning with computers, they can develop ways of learning on their own, and each child can progress at their own pace. At the same time, they can recognize the shortcomings of their own strategies, their potential strengths, and their specific situations. Computer-assisted education also improves children's hand-eye coordination, perception abilities, cognitive development and creativity.
As Near East Yeniboğaziçi Preschool, we include the use of tablets in our education and guide our students to use technology correctly and effectively. In addition to the applications that will affect the development of our children and enable them to learn while having fun, we implement our coding lesson with the aid of tablets. In order to introduce children aged 3 and over to computational thinking and coding logic, we also use the Cubetto robot set in our lessons.
