Young Children Playing and Learning in a Digital Age explores the emergence of the digital age and young children's experiences with digital technologies at home and in educational environments.

Drawing on theory and research-based evidence, this book makes an important contribution to understanding the contemporary experiences of young children in the digital age. It argues that a cultural and critically informed perspective allows educators, policy-makers and parents to make sense of children's digital experiences as they play and learn, enabling informed decision-making about future early years curriculum and practices at home and in early learning and care settings.

An essential read for researchers, students, policy-makers and professionals working with children today, this book draws attention to the evolution of digital developments and the relationship between contemporary technologies, play and learning in the early years.
