Inclusivity and young children's digital literacy practices in early education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

Digital technologies enable a multiplicity of innovative ways of accessing, reading, creating and sharing texts. Because of the prevalence of mobile technologies such as tablets in early childhood, this category of digital technology is the main focus in this chapter and several frameworks that can assist educators in designing inclusive digital literacy education for young children in the context of mobile technologies are considered. It is argued that mobile technologies can be used to overcome barriers associated with time, space, pedagogies and modalities, thus opening up new opportunities for creative, authentic, multimodal and collaborative literacy learning for young children with diverse needs.
