Children & Technology

Technology is an almost ubiquitous presence for children in some parts of the world from birth through to adulthood. We are interested in exploring the role of technologies across many different areas: in the learning environment of the home, nursery, school or community; with parents, siblings, other family members, friends and teachers; and whether children are learning and playing together or alone.

Based in the Moray House School of Education at the University of Edinburgh, we conduct research, teaching and consultancy that enables us to find out more about living and learning with technology.
