Abstract

The aim of the study is to contribute insights into digital tools in technology education in preschool. The study examines preschool teachers’ perceptions of digital tools and their impact on children's interest in teaching. In order to find this out, the study also examines preschool teachers’ different knowledge and experiences since it can have an impact on how they see and work with these tools. The study's scientific approach is based on a hermeneutic perspective that forms the basis for the qualitative method choice in the form of interviews. It can be stated that the preschool teachers' knowledge varied despite the fact that they had received further education. It was possible to identify some uncertainty about the use of digital tools in technology education. Furthermore, it can be stated that the informants considered several different advantages of digital tools. They saw opportunities to use digital tools through educational development. These opportunities were for example when preschool teachers considered that digital tools added a depth for the education and as a reinforcement of what the children were doing.
