Are computers appropriate for young children? Haugland (1999,2000) provided reviews of when to introduce computers and some benefits ofcomputer use. The Alliance for Children reported on potential harm tochildren from computer use, and proposed a moratorium on computers in earlychildhood education programs and elementary schools (Cordes & Miller,2000). This was followed by a position statement, "...signed by morethan 75 educators child-development and health authorities, technologyexperts, researchers, and other advocates for children" (Alliance forChildren, 2000). It generated a response by Ginsberg (2000), ExecutiveDirector of NAEYC. The American Academy of Pediatrics and Learning in theReal World agreed to fund research in 2001 that investigates, "...thepossible connection between early and frequent computer use andchildren's gross and visual motor development" (American Academy ofPediatrics, 2000). Issues regarding the use of computers by young childrendeserve further research. While to som e degree these questions have beenraised since before the birth of the early Texas Instruments computer (withan audio cassette tape drive, no less), vigorous and hopefully enlighteneddiscussions should continue.
