Technobabies

Baby

Advances in touchscreen technology such as smartphones and iPads provide new opportunities for babies and very young children to engage with digital media.

The Technobabies study is investigating how such technology is being used by the very young, the social and familial factors which may influence their use of touch screens and the views held by parents and carers about such young children using this technology.

The first phase of the research is an online questionnaire with a large scale longitudinal study to follow. The project is being led by Dr Jane O'Connor.
