Digital Child x ACMI Seminar: The Social Worlds of Children’s Digital Play

What is ‘digital play’, what constitutes ‘good’ digital play and what does digital play look like in practice in different contexts?

Families, teachers, educators, EdTech developers, and designers of community digital displays and exhibitions need to understand the role of ‘the digital’ in children’s play. Additionally, early childhood frameworks and curriculum guidelines now mandate that teachers support young children to explore, use, design and produce digital technologies – for personal and social needs – all with the aim of encouraging confidence, problem solving, creativity, and new ways of thinking. In this next Digital Child x ACMI seminar, teachers, researchers, and leading experts in digital play will come together to talk about digital play from four different perspectives:

  • Children’s digital play in the home
  • Children’s digital play in the early years of schooling
  • Children’s digital play in informal learning contexts
  • The business of digital play
