The primary focus of this session is to review current research on the interaction of digital technology and young children, and then engage in a discussion about some areas of concern in considering screen time via digital technology with young children. Considerable controversy exists in terms of using digital technologies with young children, especially those preschool and younger. A major issue to be posed will be the controversy over what is meant by “screen time” and how tablets and mobile technology may have changed what “screen time” is for young children. This discussion will include how to involve early childhood educators in considerations about technology and what professional development needs they may have.
