Paper 3: Implementing sustainable digital practices in kindergartens: Balancing technologies’ usefulness and ease of use?

Sammendrag

Abstract: This paper identifies the main experiences of staff developing competences for sustainable digital practices in kindergartens, exploring sensory-based technologies (SBT) like Makey Makey and micro:bit. Our findings are based on the analysis of kindergarten staff interviews conducted at the conclusion of their two years participation in the research project, DigiSus. Research shows that the main barriers for staff to adopt technology are structural constraints and perceived usefulness (Buchanan et al. 2013), but also perceived ease of use (Davis 1989). Research highlight the importance of time to practice new technology skills (Parette et al. 2013) and that technology as curriculum is a new area for professional development (Vaughan & Beers, 2017). The concept of sustainable digital practices is approached with a socio-materialist lense (Orlikowski 2017). The research methodology is qualitative, inspired by educational design research (McKenney & Reeves 2012). Fourteen interviews were transcribed and the researchers conducted coded analysis in NVivo. All participants were informed about data protection and signed a consent form. Findings show that although staff were provided extra time to learn and practice the use of SBT in their own kindergarten settings, only some developments seems possible to continue as integral kindergarten practices. Staff generally perceive the technology as very useful and contributing to novel arts and literacy activities in kindergarten. However, some of the staff believe using the SBT is too complicated or unnecessary. This implicates the need to analyse the balance between technologies’ usefulness and ease of use in order to implement sustainable digital practices.
