              Digital devices, such as smart phones and tablet computers, are becoming commonplace in young children's lives for play, entertainment, learning and communication. Recently, there has been a great deal of focus on the educational potential of these devices in both formal and info...rmal educational settings. There is now an abundance of educational 'apps' available to children, parents, and teachers, which claim to enhance children's early literacy and numeracy development, but to date, there has been very little formal investigation of the educational potential of these devices. This book discusses the impact on children's learning when iPads were introduced in three very different early years settings in Brisbane, Australia. It outlines how researchers worked with pre-school teachers and parents to explore how iPads can assist with letter and word recognition, the development of oral literacy and digital literacies and talk around play. Chapters consider the possibilities for using iPads for creativity and arts education through photography, storytelling, drawing, music creation and audio recording, and critically examine the literacies enabled by educational software available on iPads, and the relationship between digital play and literacy development. iPads in the Early Years provides exciting insights into children's digital culture and learning in the age of the iPad. It will be key reading for researchers, research students and teacher educators focusing on the early years, as well as those with an interest in the role of ICTS, and particularly tablet computers, in education.

              Digital Participation through Social Living Labs: Valuing Local Knowledge, Enhancing Engagement (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Digital Participation connects two largely separate debates: On the one hand, broadband internet access is often heralded as a panacea to bring about not only connectivity, but also innovation, economic development, new jobs, and regional prosperity. On the other hand, community ...development research has established that access by itself is necessary but not sufficient to resolve digital divides and foster digital inclusion. Edited by thought leaders from the fields of education, youth studies, librarianship, communication technology, and digital media studies, this book is positioned as a link to connect these debates. It brings together an international collection of empirically grounded case studies that identify the specific digital needs, issues and practices of different types of communities as they seek to take advantage of high speed internet access. Collectively, these cases propose new ways for enabling residents to develop their digital confidence and skills both at home and in their local community. The book brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to engage in broad ranging conversations to advance knowledge that aims to foster digital inclusion and participation. The book is organised around key focus areas, such as digital skills enhancement, youth entrepreneurship, connected learning, community digital storytelling, community-led digital initiatives and policy development.
