Technology/Software• I selected to implement a power point because it would be user friendly for my preschool students.• By simply clicking on the mouse the children can view videos and play educational games.• The power point can be used as a school and home connection. It allows the families to see what the students are learning and gives them an opportunity to extend the child’s knowledge.
