Abstract

An increasing number of very young children go on-line and use a wide range of technologies. Digital devices are becoming common educational tools in primary schools and 80% of nurseries in UK have excellent ICT facilities. More and more parents admit using tablets to keep their children quiet and entertained, although they often express feelings of guilt and would value advice on how to maximise the benefits and minimise risks. Some childcare experts started to question the beneficial effects of using digital technology in early years education; however other claim that exposing children to technology at early age is important. This presentation will provide an overview of the benefits and risks of children’s use of technology, with emphasis on the UK context and the risk of developing addiction to digital devices.
