Abstract:

Screens are now ubiquitous in the lives of children. Handheld devices have been embraced in the Early Childhood Education, allowing access to information to support learning. However concerns about duration of exposure to screen time and potential detrimental effects remain front of mind. This webinar explores the pros and cons of screen time in ECE, prompting participants to consider implications for research and practice, and how best to enhance outcomes for children across the domains of health and education.
