Crayons and iPads examines the use of digital technology in the early stages of child development, and the way in which learning techniques have evolved in classrooms across the world. Harwood explores how tablets can be used to provoke, ignite and excite children’s interest in the world around them, performing as accessible learning and instructional tools, and argues that it is through this engagement with technology that new discoveries are made and learning takes place. Guiding readers through research-based insights into children’s thinking, interactions and being, Crayons and iPads offers an important starting point upon which to build play and inquiry-based learning opportunities within early learning programs, and will appeal to both educators and researchers across child development, early years education, and digital literacy.

An exploration of the ways in which psychologists and other helping professionals can collaborate with users of assistive technology to help them get the most out of these devices. Thanks in large part to the 20th century's advances in technology, people with disabilities can live independent lives, contribute to their communities, attend regular schools, and work in professional careers as a result of assistive technology. This technological evolution has formented a shift from a medical model to a social model of technology delivery, an approach that puts as much emphasis on the user's community integration as it does on his or her physical capabilities. This change means that those in the field can no longer focus on the delivery of technology as an end in itself, but must go one step further and partner with consumers and communities to ensure that assistive devices are put to their best possible use.
