About The Webinar

How to Develop a Balanced Digital Diet for Children in Early Years

Webinar Duration: 49 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide early years managers, leaders, teachers and practitioners with an understanding of and guidance on nurturing children’s digital diet and using the benefits of technology and the internet to support early childhood development.

Research has shown that children in early years can learn valuable skills, including language, problem-solving, and science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) from technology use such as touchscreen apps, video chats and educational TV. However, these benefits often depend on other factors too and should form part of a balanced approach to developing a digital diet for pupils.

In this webinar, Amy Bidgood, lecturer in developmental psychology, and an advocate for encouraging balance in activities in the early years, will explore the concept of a digital diet, ways schools can support healthy technology use and how it can be integrated into children’s lives to benefit their development.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the digital diet approach to children’s consumption of digital media and how it can be compared to how children may consume food at a young age

  • Recognising the benefits of children’s digital consumption and technology use and how different activities can support early development
