The article about children taking pictures of different things was so interesting. Looking at what the children took pictures of and why was very interesting. I think that teacher's could use this as an evaluation tool in understanding certain aspects of a child's development. Also a teacher would be able to look at the pictures and see what the child was interested in and would be able to plan activities that the children enjoy. I liked how the reseachers looked at different countries to see what pictures children took. I thought there might be some cultural differences in what children took pictures of but there wasn't. I thought that younger children would take pictures of their toys and house etc because that is what they know and what is important to them.
In this article it stated that the children only went outside once a day. Children should be going outside at least 2 times a day. Children need more exercise and room to run around they should not be cooped up in a room all day long. Having the medical records on the computer is a great idea just as long as you back up your information so you don't lose it. But having them on the computer is much better than having them just on paper on file because you can easily access them on the computer and send them to the parents or whoever needed them. I was glad that security was a priority in the daycare because it is important to have this for the safety of all of the children and staff. This puts parents minds at ease knowing the their children are safe and that a security system is in place.
