Project Description

This project aims to identify the practices enacted and shared between young children, their families and educators in digital society. Society is becoming more not less digital over time. As this occurs, families and educators need new knowledge about what people do in digital society to inform their decision-making regarding technology use in the best interests of young children. This project produces a new Online Tool in which identified practices are shared by the Partner Organisation for empirically informed service provision. Service provision by
the Partner Organisations on this project canvasses quality digital media production, early childhood cyber-safety education, digital play and digital parenting in the early years.
