Abstract

This study set to investigate the use of digital cameras and voice recorders to accurately capture essential components of early learners' achievements. The
project was undertaken by 29 early childhood educators within kindergarten settings in Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. Data collected indicated that digital technologies, involving cameras and voice recorders, have the potential to facilitate the collection of accurate evidence for assessment purposes. Study results also reveal that digital tools have the potential to enhance not only the young child's learning but also the teaching methods of early childhood practitioners. The prospective value of employing digital technologies in documentation processes in the early years of education has only begun, with this study suggesting there is an exciting potential for these technologies to enhance assessment and record-keeping practices in early
childhood settings
