We have a number of aims for this blog. First, we want to provide a space for reflection and discussion on research relating to young children’s digital literacy and multimodal practices. We will invite members of the network to contribute to the blog as it develops.
Second, we want to use the blog as a forum to share thoughts on emerging areas of technology, considering their value, or lack of value, for young children.
Third, the blog will offer opportunities for us to reach out to the various stakeholders who might be interested in the work of the network – researchers, policy makers, media industry partners, parents, teachers and early years practitioners, and teacher educators. We hope you will use the comments option to join us in reflecting on this very important area of research. We look forward to hearing from you!
