About The Webinar

Digital Hygiene: Establishing Healthy Relationships with Technology

This webinar will provide early years managers, leaders, teachers and practitioners with practical guidance and advice on understanding how to integrate technology and the digital world into children’s lives in a healthy, safe and responsible manner to support their development.

UKCIS guidance for the early years states that managers and staff should have knowledge of infrastructure and technology to help keep children safe online. Although the internet can provide a number of benefits for children in their early years, it’s important to manage how much screen time they get, when they engage with online media and establish healthy habits that don’t impact the way they develop physically or emotionally.

In this webinar, Dr Joanna Kolak, lecturer in developmental psychology and expert in the educational potential of children’s digital media, explores how early years settings can ‘clean up’ and maintain a digitally healthy online world for children, form long-lasting habits and create a positive relationship with technology and devices.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what is meant by ‘digital hygiene’ in the early years, including the integration of technology in a way that minimises risks to children’s development.

  • Recognising the importance of healthy use of technology for different areas of child development, including both physical and emotional.

  • Realising the potential harm that technology practice used in early years could have on children and how it may disrupt emotional regulation.

  • Identifying ways to maximise the positive effects of technology in early years settings and understanding how to build up digital skills.

  • Recognising the need to establish healthy digital habits from a very early age and implementing best practice to help support children’s progress.
