Pedagogical Materials

There is still a lot of prejudice against both using new technologies and teaching mathematics in preschool. The pedagogical materials explain for the educator why video should be employed, to which end, the advantages of such an approach, and which potential downsides need to be anticipated. The materials are published as a PDF booklet that you can download for free.
