Children's control of their digital world: developmental shifts in technology performance

Farrington-Flint, Lee; Underwood, Jean and Banyard, Philip (2008). Children's control of their digital world: developmental shifts in technology performance. In: British Psychological Society Developmental Section Annual Conference, 1-3 Sep 2008, Oxford Brookes University.

Abstract

The technologies that children are found to use between 5 and 16 years have been shown to change in subtle ways. This may be to the advantage of their capability to achieve autonomy in their own learning. This relation between technology and learning and the form of any developmental shift that it takes need to be understood. The talk will present data from field studies of children’s use of technology and relate these to their movement towards becoming independent learners. Barriers to this progress will be identified and ways to promote personalising learning discussed.
