Young children are exposed to a digital world from the moment they are born, and each generation will grow up in an environment different from their parents and grandparents. Therefore, digital technology will influence their lives whether we like it or not and we need to ensure their experiences are both positive and informative. Children are using digital devices/technologies as part of their life and learning and most significantly as part of their early play experiences and play based pedagogies. I hope to highlight the ever increasing need to understand and assist educators in our Early Years settings to embrace digitalisation and utilize digital technology to underpin each child’s individual learning journey.
Free to attend.
