Abstract
Simultaneously with technology investments, a call for monitoring instruments arose to gain insight into the return on investment. In Flanders, a monitoring instrument, called MICTIVO, is used to obtain information about the status of ICT integration in Flemish education. During the first edition of MICTIVO (2007-2008), actors from early childhood education indicated that a lot of questions used in the monitor were not applicable to the early childhood education context. Therefore, a new scale was developed to measure ICT use in this educational context. Exploratory factor analysis was carried out in a previous study. Confirmatory factor analysis was used on partial data from the second edition of MICTIVO. Results indicate that two types of ICT use can be distinguished: ‘ICT use supporting basic skills and attitudes’ and ‘ICT use supporting contents and individual learning needs’. The constructed scales are valid and reliable measurement scales with good goodness of fit estimates and good levels of internal consistency. These two instruments are helpful in further research on ICT integration in early childhood education. Moreover, data confirms that the grade in which a teacher works is an important factor related to the amount of ICT use in early childhood education.
