Technology is an inevitable part of the modern world and at some point, today’s children are almost certain to encounter it, whether it is a computer, table, digital camera, or iPod.

This article provides discussion about technology and covers what it is (including digital literacy), along with research findings and recommendations you might find helpful to know about.

The second half of the article provides an outline of the things that should be talked about before you go about introducing technology in your ECE Service and the different ways you could choose to use technology.
