Abstract or Summary

Democracy and the identification and application of democratic practices using ICT is important to declare and share. • Such democratic features further clarify ICT and its position in ECE and further legitimises its place. It adds to the defining of a pedagogy and practices that will inform, reassure and maximise purposeful uses of ICT by children and teachers. • These features of our teaching pedagogy and practices are powerful. • It is something that is enshrined in our curriculum . It enables us to define our identities as teachers, our children as learners and includes family/whaanau and community. It also affirms our contributions as a sector to a democratic and fair society. It is something we teach in the here and now with children, whatever their age.
