Abstract

Education needs to formulate a curriculum that suits the digital era, especially in terms of digital literacy and cyber wellness. This research was conducted to get an overview of digital literacy curriculum management in kindergarten. A total of 122 kindergartens were purposely selected to take part in a survey of this study. Of the 122 kindergartens, 27 kindergartens have integrated digital literacy education in schools, while 95 kindergartens have no integrated digital literacy education in schools. Then, the 27 kindergartens joined a focus group discussion and the results showed that there were six valid and reliable indicators to evaluate the implementation of digital literacy curriculum management in kindergarten, they are: 1)availability of digital infrastructure; 2) competence of managers and teachers in digital literacy; 3) curriculum objectives related to mastery of  basic digital literacy competencies in children; 4) digital literacy implementation in school (children’s learning experiences); 5) digital literacy teaching materials and strategies in schools and 6) parental involvement in curriculum development. In addition, there is a need for a technology integration development module in kindergarten classes that can become a guide for teachers and parents when using digital technology with children.
