Play and digital technology – new info sheet
This Play and digital technology information sheet takes a critical look at children and young people’s use of mobile phones and other mobile devices, focusing on play. It also examines how children use devices in their play, as well as different perspectives and suggestions to support those working with children.
While written from a playwork perspective it is also relevant for parents and carers, other professionals working with children, and policy makers.
This information sheet has been written by Chris Martin. Chris is a playworker, researcher, and play activist. He is currently researching children’s interactions with mobile digital technology for his PhD at the University of Leicester.
