Technology is omnipresent in the lives of young children in the 21st century. Children from all walks of life are growing up with digital tools such as smartphones, tablets, computers and gaming systems and often are experts at navigating these tools well before entering kindergarten. This session examines the current research on the use of technology for children ages birth to 8 years, and how mainstream edutainment apps, assistive technology, and AAC, can be best utilized as resources for young children, including those with disabilities and English Language Learners.
