Joanna McPake is Reader in the School of Education at the University of Strathclyde. Lydia Plowman is Professor and Christine Stephen is Research Fellow at the School of Education at the University of Stirling. Together, we have undertaken three studies of pre-school children's experiences with digital technologies at home, addressing issues such as whether children from low-income families are disadvantaged in this regard, how the acquisition of early digital literacies compares with traditional literacies and the characteristics of play with digital toys and games. An in-depth discussion of the findings from our first two studies can be found in our recent book, Growing up with technology: young children learning in a digital world.
