Digital Technology Use by and with Young Children: A Systematic Review for the Statement on Young Children and Digital Technologies
Mantilla, Ana; Edwards, Susan
Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, v44 n2 p182-195 Jun 2019
This paper reports on a systematic review of the literature conducted to inform Early Childhood Australia (ECA) in the development of a national Statement on Young Children and Digital Technologies. The review examines empirical studies published between 2012 and 2017 identified through systematic screening to advise adults on appropriate digital technology use 'by and with' young children aged birth to eight years. Four themes are canvassed in this review: (1) healthy practices; (2) relationships; (3) pedagogy and (4) digital play. Findings from the themes suggest advice for adults working in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector about appropriate digital technology use 'by and with' young children.
