Early Start Speaker Series – Digital Technologies & Young Children

Not all screen time is created equal!
The reality is that many children are accessing digital technologies and we have a responsibility to ensure these are being used in the best possible ways.

Let go of the guilt and join UOW Early Start Professor Lisa Kervin for an in-depth look at quality screen time and digital play for children aged 3 to 8 years.

What you’ll learn

  • What to look for when children are engaging in digital play
  • How to shift your focus on screen time from quantity to quality
  • How to make decisions about digital technology use
    – the what, when and how
  • How to model best practice when using digital technologies
  • Guidance on how to select apps for young children
