The Early Childhood Technology Literacy Project Web site is a product of the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. The resources collected and developed during the course of the project are a great resource for other early childhood teachers. Information on the grant that funded this project is available as well as lesson plans, activities, training materials, suggested software, and early literacy resources. Teachers can find information on organizing and implementing a Computer Family Night and a presentation on Using Technology to Enhance Balanced Literacy. A showcase of student work is also included. This is a valuable resource for any K-2 teacher.
