RODRIGUEZ, María Montserrat Castro. The materials used in early Childhood Schools, projected on their websites and blogs. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.77, pp.95-116.  Epub 25-Oct-2019. ISSN 1984-0411.

In Spain, Early Childhood Education is not a compulsory schooling stage, but, currently, almost 100% of students aged 3-6 are in school. In recent years in the scientific community an interest has been raised to investigate different curricular aspects related to the educational praxis of this stage. In this framework, materials play a fundamental role as mediators for access to knowledge and also for the development of educational projects. Also, the incentive policies for the use of ICTs in society and at school generate new ways to go beyond walls: their websites and blogs serve as a showcase for centers to record their work. This article presents the results of an investigation that has two objectives: Identify the type of materials projected on the blogs and websites of the educational centers, and check if they are contextualized in the educational community. In this research, four schools are selected that respond to four representative models regarding the use of materials and websites / blogs. It is an intentional selection based on the following criteria: type of school, socio-economic context, use of its websites / blogs and types of materials. It is a sample of 27 classrooms grouped in four centers. The research instrument was developed based on the indicators proposed by Booth and Ainscow (2011). The results indicate that there is a culture of sharing materials; majority use of materials from outside the community except in rural centers. The use of blogs and website differs: some centers reflect processes and others present the products.
