"The Digital World of Young Children: Emergent Literacy" | Pearson Foundation - 2 views

  •  
    "Blanchard's and Moore's research finds that developmental milestones are changing as a new generation of young children approach learning and literacy in ways not thought possible in the past. According to this new report, digital media is already transforming the language and cultural practices that enable early literacy development, making possible a new kind of personal and global interconnectedness.

    The research reveals that:

    *

    Opportunities to engage with digital media increasingly prevail through the use of mobile devices-and in developing countries access to mobile devices is more commonplace than access to other technologies
    *

    Developmental milestones are changing as young people's access to mobile and digital technology grows.
    *

    Digital media positively impacts children's opinion of learning, providing engagement opportunities not always seen with print materials."

    "This report is based on evidence from a small-scale survey carried out between April and July 2009 in 35 maintained schools in England. It evaluates the extent to which the schools taught pupils to adopt safe and responsible practices in using new technologies, and how they achieved this. It also assesses the extent and quality of the training the schools provided for their staff."
