The computer is a pervasive presence in all our lives these days, particularly with the advent of personal phones and their widespread use. It is therefore no surprise that early education software has also become recognized as an effective tool in the early education of young children.
When it is used appropriately for the age it can be highly effective in reinforcing early childhood learning experiences. For this software to be effective, it must include specific features that include appropriate pedagogic design, content, and user-interface elements that are designed specifically for early childhood education requirements. This includes localization features that make it specific to given age groups and cultures.
Specific features that should be included in the software must deliver pictures, animation, and sound. Where possible, content should be culture-independent and have neutral graphical, user interface, and story-line features. Children’s software that is worth being adapted to suit another country’s educational standards should be developmentally and culturally appropriate for the age group.
