I got into early childhood education by chance and changing my profession at the beginning of the last year of the 20th century. I have been a kindergarten teacher and head of studies and since 2005 a lecturer. I graduated as a kindergarten teacher at the Tallinn Pedagogical Seminary (TPS) in 2003 and the master's programs in educational management (2007) and educational technology (2014) at Tallinn University.
I entered the field of educational technology in 2007, when I offered the subject "Computer in Kindergarten" in the curriculum of future kindergarten teachers at TPS, which focused on the possibilities of technology in planning the learning process and in the teacher's work. The development and possibilities of digital technology have led me to lead subjects and theses in bachelor's and master's studies related to the possibilities and challenges of digital technology in education.
