Many young children are growing up in a digitally-saturated environment and parents continue to be the main gatekeeper in deciding when and why their child is introduced to a tablet, computer or smartphone. My current research is looking at parental perspectives about new technologies and how they perceive these devices as enhancing or hindering their child’s learning experience. A questionnaire was distributed to parents with children below the ages of five to better understand their perspectives about young children's interactions with touch-screen technology.
