"In the digital-information age where smartphones, tablets, e-books and smart boards abound, it is difficult to know what and how much technology is appropriate for early learners. For early childhood professionals, who work directly with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, it is essential to understand how screens and digital applications can affect young children’s development and learning...we must take this understanding – grounded in research and daily observations of children -- into account to ensure that children develop in optimal ways."
