Title:Developmentally Appropriate Digital Environments for Young Children
Author(s):Cooper, Linda Z.
Subject(s):Children and digital resources
Young children
Information seeking
Abstract:The developmental level of child information seekers affects their ability to interact with digital technology as a means to satisfy their information needs. Principles of child development and learning that inform developmentally appropriate practice must be considered when designing digital environments for the very young. Cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development impact a child’s ability to interact successfully with a digital environment. These developmental considerations and design responses supportive of young children’s information-seeking behavior, as well as perspectives of theorists in the area of child development and system design, are addressed.
