|Children at Home in Madrid||ETNIA-E Cuadernos de investigación etnográfica sobre infancia, adolescencia y educación del IMA / FMEE||4||1-15||In this article we focus on transformations occurring in middle/upper-class children’s homes in Madrid (Spain). We examine emergent patterns of use and appropriation of domestic space in children’s lives and focus on two themes: (1) the re-utilization of daily tasks and home spaces for children’s leisure and socialization, (2) the role of new technologies of communication in children’s lives and social relations from home. The results show children’s active role in the appropriation of domestic space and suggest that discussions of children’s withdrawal from public space need to be reconsidered from an ecological-systemic perspective.||https://www.academia.edu/9500988/No_4_Octubre_2012_Children_at_home_in_Madrid_-_David_Poveda_Marta_Morgade_y_Javier_Gonz%C3%A1lez-Pati%C3%B1o|

First, it considers the intersection between ethnography and multimodality, their compatibility and the ambivalences that arise from their potentially conflicting epistemological framings. Using data from an ESRC-funded study of early literacy across printed and digital media, the paper illustrates how an ethnographic toolkit that incorporates a social semiotic approach to multimodality can produce richly situated insights into the complexities of early literacy development in a digital age, and can inform culturally sensitive theories of literacy as social practice.||http://qrj.sagepub.com/content/11/3/293|

|New directions for early||Journal of Early Childhood Literacy||15||3||289–310||10.1177/1468798414533560||This paper discusses how touch-screen technology can offer innovative opportunities for early literacy learning but also present challenges for teachers and children. It reports on a small-scale study where iPads were loaned to a nursery (3-4 year-olds), primary school reception class (4-5 year-olds) and a Special School (7-13-year-olds). Through pre- and post-interviews with practitioners and observations of practice in the three different settings, the study found that well-planned iPad-based literacy activities stimulated children’s motivation, concentration, offered rich opportunities for communication, collaborative interaction, independent learning, and for children to construct positive images of themselves in the literacy classroom.||http://ecl.sagepub.com/content/15/3/289|

|Touching the virtual, touching the real:iPads and enabling literacy for students experiencing disability||Australian Journal of Language and Literacy||37||2||107-116||This paper discusses the potential of iPads for supporting literacy learning in special education, with a focus on how the gestural and sensory experience of touch can enable young learners with moderate to complex physical and/or cognitive disability to engage in independent and inclusive classroom-based literacy activities. The findings are based on a study of a diverse group of students aged 3 to 19 years in a special school, using the ethnographic tools of field notes, observations and interviews with teachers and students about the potentials and challenges of using iPads in the classroom, focusing on constructing an interdisciplinary theorisation of touch and conceptualisations of its role in learning.||http://web.a.ebscohost.com.libezproxy.open.ac.uk/ehost/detail/detail?vid=4&sid=101cd40a-2285-4e71-9e54-ee3a6474f4d5%40sessionmgr4005&hid=4207&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZSZzY29wZT1zaXRl#AN=96256130&db=a9h|

Harm in everyday experiences with technology. A qualitative study with school-aged children||PhD thesis||From a study with two objectives: to understand the personal values and meanings children might use to interpret their technologized lives and, to uncover unintended harmful outcomes (more or less) hidden in children’s everyday digital lives, this thesis presents qualitative data on children’s digital connections and interactions and the contradictions enclosed in a constantly changing (risk) society and how adults and children have different parameters when assessing harm.
A participatory approach enabled to reach the intricacies of participants’ interactions (a total of 41, mostly aged 10-12 from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds). Children’s voices inform a multi-lens and data-driven approach drawing perspectives from sociology of risk, childhood studies, socio-technical studies and Zemiology.

The aims of the study were to examine pre-school children’s use of apps and identify how far tablet apps for pre-school children (aged 0-5), including apps that incorporate augmented reality, promote play and creativity. The project had 4 phases: (i) An online survey of 2000 parents of 0-5 year-olds in the UK who had access to tablets; (ii) Case studies of six 0-5-year-old children's use of tablets/ apps in homes; (iii) 20 hours' observations of children aged 3-5 using apps in a school (iv) analysis of the affordances of the most popular apps for 0-5 year-olds in the UK, in addition to 6 augmented reality apps.||http://www.techandplay.org|

Definitions of literacy are considered over time, along with different understandings of what ‘literacy’ is and debates about how it should be taught, with a focus on the current curriculum emphasis on learning phonics. New terms are considered, including the plural literacies to indicate the many different ways that children and adults engage with literacy in different contexts, and multimodal literacies, with examples from recent research of inclusive approaches to supporting early literacy development through playful activities with traditional and ‘new’ media.||http://www.mheducation.co.uk/9780335262649-emea-early-years-foundations-critical-issues|

How have the literacy practices they encounter changed as a result of the ‘digital age’ and are print-based definitions still adequate for theorising early literacy?

The chapter clarifies how children’s uses of different modes are shaped by the social and cultural worlds that they find themselves in, and how learning to be literate in today’s world involves acquiring a range of skills and practices in different media, such as books, personal computers, games consoles and mobile phones.||https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/desirable-literacies/book232567|

It draws on an ESRC-funded study (RES-000-22-2451) investigating 3-and 4-year-old children’s encounters with literacy as they engage with a range of printed and digital technologies at home and in a nursery. The paper considers how children use multiple communicative modes as they experience literacy in different media, and how these experiences underpin metacognitive development. Drawing on notions of literacy as social practice, this paper discusses how the advent of new technologies has introduced new dimensions into young children’s literacy learning, the implications of which have not yet been fully recognised in early years policy guidance, training or practice.||http://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ907712|

|It's all about the apps': Parental mediation of pre-schoolers' digital lives||Media International Australia||153||148-56||1329-878X||A young mother with a two-year-old and a four-year-old is asked about her experience of parenting. 'I can't believe how much is different,' she says, 'between the first child and the second. It's all about the apps.' Elsewhere in the room, the two pre-schoolers are absorbed in collaborative play with an iPad. Across the continent, a distant relative prepares for a pre-arranged Skype session with her young niece and nephew. She wonders whether the youngest, who has never video-conferenced before, will recognise and talk to her. These children are growing up with a game changer. What had been hailed as 'the Semantic Web' is turning out to be something creatively different. This article uses a series of vignettes to examine the power of the app, from Playschool Playtime to Skype, to highlight, analyse and discuss young children's (aged from birth to five) digital interventions facilitated by a download and touchscreen technologies.||https://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;dn=812575059739048;res=IELLCC|

Together, these factors capture a major source of difference and inequality across households : hence we ask, how do they shape parental mediation of digital media ?
In terms of method, this report is based on are analysis of the rich data reported in Chaudron et al. (2015). Since that study was itself exploratory, and since the relevance of prior literature on European families of young children in the digital age is uncertain, the present analysis must also be exploratory. The 70 families (the majority with children aged between four and seven, hence our label ‘young children’) were originally selected to span a range of educational and income backgrounds, thus permitting comparisons by socioeconomic status. For the present analysis we divided the families into three groups–lower income/less educated, lower income/more educated and higher income/more educated (note that only two families could be characterised as higher income/less educated)

|A Qualitative Inquiry into the Contextualized Parental Mediation Practices of Young Children’s Digital Media Use at Home||Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media||60||1||1-22||Providing children with digital opportunities while equally minimizing risks is a challenging responsibility. Nevertheless, there is a scarcity of in-depth knowledge on how parents mediate young children’s digital media use. This article describes a qualitative, mixed-method study involving 24 parents and 36 children aged 3 to 9. The contribution is twofold. Firstly, we examine the strategies parents apply and the contextual factors shaping their mediation practices. Secondly, we reveal the emergence of new strategies and point to their dynamic nature. The emergence of distant mediation and participatory learning suggests new prospects for parental mediation literature in today’s digital world.||https://www.researchgate.net/publication/280098255_A_Qualitative_Inquiry_into_the_Contextualized_Parental_Mediation_Practices_of_Young_Children's_Digital_Media_Use_at_Home|

|User eXperience Laddering with Preschoolers: Unveiling Attributes and Benefits of Cuddly Toy Interfaces||Personal and Ubiquitous Computing||16||4||451-465||In this paper, we suggest Laddering as a promising empirical method to evaluate the impact of tangibility on young children’s user experiences. In the first part of this paper, we explain what Laddering is. We explicate the conceptual foundations of Laddering, discuss the typical Laddering interviewing technique and focus on the Laddering data treatment. Then, we argue why Laddering might be especially valuable in a context of UX evaluations of tangible and embedded interfaces with children. In the second part of this paper, we present a case study, comparing three cuddly toy interfaces, and we demonstrate how Laddering can be used with preschoolers to explain preferences between these tangible interfaces. The case study confirms that Laddering can contribute to verifying the assumed benefits of tangibility. Laddering revealed how specific cuddly toy attributes as opposed to non-cuddly toy attributes led to specific benefits for the young participants. However, contrary to research findings from developmental literature, only children aged 5 years and older proved to be capable of performing as full Laddering respondents.||https://lirias.kuleuven.be/bitstream/123456789/324347/3/User+eXperience+Laddering+with+preschoolers.pdf|

First, we elaborate on the theoretical framework. We introduce the uses and gratifications paradigm (U&G). We argue that U&G is a good approach to researching likeability of media applications. Next, we complete the U&G framework with expectancy-value (EV) theory. EV theory helps us move from theoretical insights to concrete design guidelines. Together, the U&G framework and the EV model form the foundation of our extended likeability framework for the design and evaluation of interactive media applications, for preschoolers in the home environment. Finally, we demonstrate a practical case of our extended likeability framework via the research project CuTI. The CuTI project aims at revealing those particular user gratifications and design attributes that are important to support playful behaviour and fun activities of preschoolers in the home environment.||https://lirias.kuleuven.be/bitstream/123456789/259974/3/The+Extended+Likeability+Framework_vandenabeelezaman.pdf|

|Sensitivity to Parental Play Beliefs and Mediation in Young Children's Hybrid Play Activities||Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Interaction Design and Children||2015||170-177||Supporting young children's play in the digital world is a challenging endeavor. Little is known, however, about the parental beliefs and mediation practices regarding children's facilitated play in hybrid (mixed digital/physical) environments and how one can account for this through design. Following a Value Sensitive Design approach, we performed: 1) a conceptual literature investigation, 2) an empirical survey with 1398 parents of child(ren) aged 4-6 years, and 3) a technical investigation on online customer reviews of hybrid playful products for children. Our findings reveal the role of parents' mediation and beliefs in shaping young children's play. We provide designers with guidance to be accountable of the way design properties can foster parental play beliefs and support adult-child interaction. We conclude that young children's facilitated play in hybrid environments is shaped by both the social context in which it is enacted and the affordances provided through design.||https://lirias.kuleuven.be/bitstream/123456789/491036/2/p170-bleumers.pdf|

|A Value Sensitive Design Approach to Parental Software for Young Children||Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Interaction Design and Children||2015||363-366||Parental control software enables parents to support risk-management of their children’s digital media use. However, tools to support online opportunities are left unexplored. This paper presents an explorative inquiry into stakeholder values related to parental software for young children, using a Value Sensitive Design approach. By studying values, we aim to illuminate design of parental software solutions that are responsive to the issues families find most important. We engaged in value exploration of corporate and parental values, and conducted a workshop with the corporate stakeholders to align stakeholder values. The results highlight the importance of values such as ‘control for safety’ and ‘involvement’ in the development of parental software for young children. The contribution of this paper lies in the understanding of stakeholder needs and values concerning software tools that balance online risks and opportunities for young children.||http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2771917|

We start with a revision of theoretical literature and guidelines. Developmental literature suggests that children aged two to seven years old have the cognitive capabilities to perform as Laddering interviewees. Next, we put these findings to the test via a practical case. The results of our case study demonstrate that only the older children, aged five years and older, were able to construct meaningful ladders. As for the type of ladders created, our results are in line with literature; children are inclined to attribute external reasons to product preferences rather than internal reasons, and consequently create ladders of attributes and consequences, not reaching for values.||https://lirias.kuleuven.be/bitstream/123456789/297564/1/Laddering+with+Young…..pdf|

Evaluation through drawing seems to be a
promising method to work with preliterate children; however,
it is advisable to use it together with other methods.

The terms ‘ecology’ and ‘context’ are widely used to describe such settings but may be less appropriate as the boundaries between ‘home’ and ‘technology’ become less distinct. The paper traces associations between ‘ecology’, ‘culture’ and ‘context’ and outlines some of the ways in which the increasing omnipresence and invisibility of technologies in the home prompt different ways of both thinking about the research setting and suitable methods for exploring children’s everyday lives. Using the Internet of Things as an illustration, it contests default understandings of context and discusses the need to reconsider our use of terminology so that it takes account of the methodological implications and its theoretical provenance.

A study that was framed by an ecocultural approach focusing on children's play and learning with toys and technologies is used to illustrate some of the methodological challenges of conducting research with young children in the home. This theoretical framework enabled us to identify and develop a range of methods that illuminated the home's unique mix of inhabitants, learning opportunities and resources and to investigate parents' ethnotheories, or cultural beliefs, that gave rise to the complex of practices, values and attitudes and their intersections with technology and support for learning in the home. This resulted in a better understanding of the role of technology in the lives of these 3- and 4-year-old children.||http://iwc.oxfordjournals.org/content/27/1/36|

The different approaches to conceptualizing technology at home and in educational settings are highlighted by the language used. ICT is generally used to describe the information and communication technologies available in preschool and school, a policy term that is strongly associated with educational uses of computers and interactive whiteboards. The chapter discusses the particular requirements and perceived vulnerabilities of preschool children followed by a consideration of the close relationship between learning and play, and what this means for the use of digital media. Some of the differences between practices in preschool and home settings are outlined, concluding with reflections on the design of digital media and possible future developments.

Data analysis focuses on the complex interplay between the storybook app's interactive features and the children's responses to them. Our findings show that interactive elements increase the child's autonomy, as they tend to promote the importance of the reader, positioning him or her as a collaborator, storyteller, an author or an internal character in the fiction; something that can materialise in exciting narrative strategies that can trigger powerful responses to digital literary texts in emergent readers, including playing, creating new fictions or engaging emotionally with the story. Finally, we argue that the Reader Response models that have been used over recent decades to understand children's reading experiences with storybooks need to be revised to better understand their current experiences with interactive texts.||http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/lit.12089/abstract|

Foi feita uma análise de conteúdo de algumas dessas práticas cujos resultados apontam em cinco sentidos: a) há casos em que a utilização de tecnologias pouco acrescentou às práticas anteriormente executadas nas turmas; b) noutros casos, principalmente quando a tecnologia passa efetivamente para a mão dos alunos, verifica-se uma grande motivação e o desenvolvimento de capacidades sócio afetivas e linguísticas c) noutros, ainda, a tecnologia estimula a articulação de saberes, tornando a aprendizagem significativa; d) as TIC são um ponto agregador de motivação; e) há casos em que as tecnologias têm um grande impacto na aprendizagem e, pensa-se, na vida académica e pessoal dos alunos. Com estes exemplos, esperamos contribuir para estimular a renovação de práticas pedagógicas em termos da dimensão metodológica do uso das TIC no 1º CEB.||https://comunidade.ese.ipb.pt/ieTIC|

one experience and it also shows the e-learning contribution to the knowledge building and its influence on the
method and on the teacher`s profile.
The results show that the inter activity between students and the platform helps them to achieve good learning results
and to feel self motivated, self confident and it also includes the parents` responsibility in a quality education. The
pupil and her/his parents` confidence produces satisfaction and a well-being climate towards the school.

as formal or informal contents. The pedagogical communication suffers deep changes, showing
new challenges that report obsolete pedagogical models. Such alterations claim compulsory changes
in the communicational styles and in the teacher/pupil profile.
Even though there are some promises in society with renewed possibilities of better social integration
and, consequently, a better participation, many adverse signal phenomenon keep happening in high
industrialized and technologically, advanced societies.
Despite all, of this it seems clear that the ICT can take unpredictable directions contributing to the
social exclusion, making new deep inequalities. It’s a school duty to assume the ICT use by pupils in
such a way that they feel like they are participating and so, everyone can learn and build the knowledge
in society together. We look forward to bringing out a brief reflection set about by ICT education
integration and present an experience with Moodle platform that may be the starting point in future
initiatives, becoming a real inclusion factor and the full citizenship statement, since the early school

Thus, the purpose of this analysis is to reflect about technological trends in an educational context and their underlying models by analyzing the role played by digital textbooks in Portugal in an innovating context. This way, we intend to contribute to an educational policy as we plan to relate the teachers’ training to the increasing development of the digital textbooks and we also intend to contribute to the understanding of a didactic resource which is closely related to the learning processes which resort to advanced technology.||http://www.usc.es/libros/index.php/spic/catalog/book/759|

o currículo. Configura, ainda, momentos de inquietação que reformam velhos hábitos e dão alento a uma escola renovada
capaz de responder às exigências desta nova geração de jovens multimédia.
Reconhecendo a importância das competências e dos saberes dos professores para ultrapassarem os desafios da era digital e
adaptarem-se a novos contextos metodológicos, pedagógicos, estratégicos e tecnológicos, é importante desenvolver estudos
que incluam não só a análise dos conhecimentos dos professores em TIC, mas também o tipo de práticas pedagógicas que
realizam com os alunos e como as avaliam, para se compreenderem efectivamente as mudanças que ocorrem com o uso das
TIC e o seu significado no currículo ou nas tradições dos docentes.
O estudo que apresentamos envolveu cerca de 1300 professores do 1º Ciclo do Ensino Básico de seis concelhos da região do
grande Porto, tendo como base a análise de dois inquéritos. Um dos inquéritos pretendia analisar a experiência com TIC dos
professores, o outro solicitava a apresentação de boas práticas realizadas com recurso às novas tecnologias.
Verificou-se existir um grupo de ferramentas TIC que os professores revelaram não ter conhecimentos suficientes para as
integrarem nas usas práticas e outro grupo, de dimensão mais reduzido, que envolve ferramentas dominadas satisfatoriamente
pelos professores. Os conhecimentos e a frequência de utilização de ferramentas tecnológicas têm uma associação
estatisticamente significativa com os obstáculos à integração das TIC. Constatou-se, ainda, que para uns, a integração de
novas tecnologias poderá ter representado o passo para um novo perfil de professor e de aluno, uma escola sem fronteiras,
aberta e transparente, pelas diferentes metodologias de trabalho, pelos novos ambientes de aprendizagem, pelas novas
competências exigidas aos alunos, professores e pais. Enquanto, para outros não passou de mais uma ferramenta de trabalho
pelo que a tecnologia se converteu num instrumento de exposição e de consolidação. As boas práticas exigem políticas
educativas eficientes e boas lideranças de escolas, uma adequação do currículo aos tempos actuais para que se assegurem

The issue is suggested to be addressed by considering the agency and aesthetic dimensions which lie at the heart of personalisation theory. Translating agency into reading practice means establishing children’s early authoring, which can result in an eclectic approach to content and increased reading motivation, as long as children’s aesthetic choices are fully supported. However, it is also argued that early authoring should not be conflated with achieving an overly child-centred literature, which would ignore the reciprocity dimension of community and society relations. Digital book-making is suggested to offer original concepts which might provide an alternative approach for future work in the area of early authoring.||http://cie.sagepub.com/content/17/3/304.short|

A case study of Sweden and Lithuania aims at analysing the important question of inclusion and exclusion when it comes to the media literacy and the digital divide. Analysis of country-level factors, such as social-stratification, technological infrastructure, educational system, cultural values is provided with the goal to identify the keen factors widening the digital divide of certain population groups in both countries. The study has revealed that in regard to media literacy, age matters the most in case of Lithuania. On the contrary, in Sweden the digital divide between different age groups is diminishing but the media literacy of socio-economically marginalized groups (immigrants in particular) is much lower as compared to the general trends in population. The digital generation – children and teenagers – have got much more in common in both countries as opposed to the senior adult populations.

As the quotation from Shakespeare indicates, the question of the roles we play in society and their relation to our self is not new; however, the rise of cyberculture has further complicated the relationship between our sense of self and our social roles, because it provides more opportunities to adopt new or changed identities. Some contributors to this volume welcome the complexities of the self that cyberculture has engendered, and explore changes in morality, community, and identity. Others acknowledge the negative effects of such performative identities, questioning what we lose by constructing ourselves so constantly in response to a virtual audience. Nevertheless, cyberculture is now “real” culture, and coming to terms with who we are online increasingly determines who we are altogether.||http://www.interdisciplinarypress.net/product/all-the-worlds-a-stage-theorizing-and-producing-blended-identities-in-a-cybercultural-world/|

|The place of digital devices in the home and family routines of young children (3-7) in Madrid||Media Education: Studi, Ricerche, Boune Pratiche||7||2||303-319.||10.14605/MED721608||This paper presents results from a study exploring how families with young children organize their daily routines and the place that digital technologies and devices play in these routines. Data from the study draws on an extension of the study coordinated by the EU Joint Research Center on young children (0-8) and digital technology conducted in Spain during 2015 and includes home observations, interviews and video home-tours with 9 families and 10 children from the Madrid (Spain) metropolitan area between 3 and 7 years of age. The analysis draws on concepts from current socio-cultural and ecological theory and examines the interrelationships between adult home activities, children’s care and activity needs and the co-organization of family routines. Our sample allows dividing the children in two age groups (five children between 3-5 years of age and five children between 6-7 years of age) and the cross-sectional analysis suggests a developmental pattern in the co-organization of this family activity and participation system. Younger children seem to have a more autonomous, but not necessarily solitary, use of digital (hand-held) devices that is compatible with parent’s attention to other house chores or work-related demands. Older children continue to use digital devices but as their uses become more varied and parental worries about risks more explicit, more engaged mediation strategies become visible in parents. In both cases, family members co-construct their family routines and activity ecologies, which develop over time, and our data suggests that digital devices (in the set of urban/suburban “European” families we have studied) play an important role in the organization and development of children’s family life.||http://riviste.erickson.it/med/|

This paper takes a children’s rights approach and seeks to add further insights to the debates on digital technology in early years education by presenting the views of one of the central players within this debate – young children.||http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/03004430.2016.1238824|

|“Un giorno nella vita” Percosi internationali di ricerca della prima infanzia||Firenze||Seid||9788889473665||“Un giorno nella vita” del quale siamo testimoni è quello di sette bambine che vivono in Paesi diversi e lontani: Italia, Canada, Stati Uniti, Thailandia, Perù, Regno Unito, Turchia. Le bambine hanno circa trenta mesi e uno straordinario, composito, e coordinato gruppo di ricercatori ha applicato a una giornata della loro vita quotidiana
una nuova metodologia osservativa. La metodologia osservativa, che ha numerosi elementi in comune con quella adottata da altri ricercatori che aderiscono ad un approccio culturale, prevede che venga videoregistrata continuativamente una considerevole porzione della giornata, sia casalinga, che fuori della casa, di una bambina o di un gruppo di bambini che vivono in luoghi lontani tra loro. La logica non è
quella di formulare confronti rispetto a come un certo problema viene affrontato in contesti culturali diversi, ma quella di cogliere le declinazioni, di per sé inconfrontabili di aspetti della vita quotidiana. Questi aspetti, a loro volta sono originali e riferiti a momenti non banali
della quotidianità, come la musicalità, lo humour, il contatto con i sistemi di lettura e il disegno. Le bambine che vengono osservate sono bambine “che crescono bene” e si è portati a constatare come le culture familiari e sociali di appartenenza suggeriscano soluzioni per favorire il loro sviluppo. La cornice teorica di riferimento è quindi oltre che la psicologia culturale quella della psicologia positiva: studiare le cose che funzionano per cogliere cosa favorisce il benessere. Alle registrazioni video, sulla cui metodologia è offerta un' ampia e preziosa discussione vengono affiancate interviste ai genitori relative alla loro idea di una bambina “in gamba”. Il libro è quindi prezioso per chiunque riflette sul tema dell'osservazione- cosa e come osservare – siano essi genitori, educatori o insegnanti, proponendoci dei fermo-immagine di
queste quotidianità particolarmente istruttivi. A un livello professionale
più specifico le indicazioni di metodo per raccogliere i dati della ricerca possono ispirare ricercatori e studenti, senza tecnicismi, ma con straordinario scrupolo scientifico e critico nella descrizione del proprio procedere.

|Julia Gillen & Catherine Ann Cameron||International perspectives on early childhood research: A Day in the Life||Basingstoke, UK & New York||Palgrave Macmillan||978-0-230-23249-5||This book presents an innovative approach to investigating early childhood and human culture more generally. The Day in the Life project studied young children and their families in seven different countries worldwide. The findings of the international, multidisciplinary team are
synthesised here in a collaboratively authored study. Different paths to thriving are illustrated through words and images as the authors capture interactions of the girls with their environments, including caregivers. Embodiment, sound, movement and language are all considered in the light of a dynamic approach to multimodal research. The result is a
fascinating new contribution to studies of human culture, demonstrating how the children learn an enormous amount about the environments in which they live, transforming their own understanding and family life in the course of their activities. The book will be of interest to all
those engaged in research and practice concerned with resilience in early childhood, families and the development of multimodal, participatory research methods.

|The process of learning how to write is demanding, slow, and complex. Primary school students often experience problems in writing and therefore, teachers should provide scientifically validated strategies to empower their performance, such as Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD). Reflecting on the changes in the social reality and students´ personal interests, the inclusion of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the educational context and practice of writing has also become exceedingly relevant. However, using ICT associated to other teaching methodologies is not always explored in the classroom. Therefore, we have constructed a SRSD+ICT model based on ICT educational models and Evidence Based Practice (EBP) combined with the SRSD. This model enabled students to self-control and self-assesses their own writing and learning behavior using ICT. Using a quasi-experimental methodology, we also analyzed the impact of two different interventions, SRSD+ICT and SRSD, in 178, 4th grade student’s performance of writing opinion essays, divided equally in two groups, after 12 weeks instruction (90 minutes/week). Both interventions showed positive results in the students' writing skills, although the results from the SRSD+ICT model were better. These results reinforce the pertinence and usefulness of this model in the teaching-learning process of writing that should be discussed and tested in different contexts.

|This communication is about the application of ICT and the SRSD model in order to improve the writing of opinion essays by students, particularly those struggling with writing tasks and with learning difficulties.
This quasi-experimental study will be based on an observational study of ten 4th grade classrooms (n=178). It seeks to compare the groups and some of the basic causal support attributed: whether the use of ICT improves the outcomes of: a) writing elements; b) number of words; c) the number transitional words; d) quality; e) approach to writing; f)attitudes and g)self-efficacy.
Our expectations are that all these variables show high efficacy after implementation of the new model as well as a relationship with the quality of writing. For instruments that are being constructed, we similarly expect an improvement especially regarding multimodal texts.
The practical implications of this study are: a)to contribute to the systematization of the potentials of ICT in writing problems; b)to propose new ways of using the SRSD model using ICT; c) to contribute to the inclusion of ICT and multimodal digital writing and d) to analyze the effect of SRSD + model in the quality of writing.

|A investigação tem estudado a relação entre as perceções dos alunos sobre o seu conhecimento de escrita no seu desempenho, no entanto em Portugal existe a necessidade de desenvolver escalas de medida para avaliar estas perceções, especialmente no 1.º Ciclo. Esta investigação pretendeu validar a Escala de Perceção do Conhecimento de Escrita ao contexto portuguêsjunto de alunos do 4.º ano de escolaridade, traduzida e adaptada de uma escala americana. Participaram 338 alunos (170 rapazes e 167 raparigas) de 4 agrupamento de escolas públicas do distrito de Braga, selecionados aleatoriamente. Os resultados mostraram uma estrutura de componentes que explica 38.5 % da variância dos dados. A escala sobre o conhecimento na escrita apresenta uma estrutura diferenciada, que originou a emergência de dois fatores: “Produzir conteúdo” e “Planificar”. Analisando de forma isolada cada um dos fatores verificou-se uma estrutura consistente, com valores de Alpha Cronbach a oscilar entre.570 e .776. Contudo o Alpha total da escala, composta por 12 itens é de .776 e reúne os critérios de fiabilidade exigidos.||https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Catarina_Araujo10|

|The research regarding the model of Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) in writing has proved its effectiveness, mainly in improving the writing and the development of metacognitive skills in students who struggle with writing. Similarly, according to research, well known technological tools can benefit the learning of writing skills. Today, children are becoming experienced users of digital communication and are increasingly familiar with writing digitally and on-line, resulting in relevant changes in the attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of teachers and educational communities. One of the gaps that we have identified is the absence of studies that combine SRSD with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Thus, this paper aims to present an early stage of an adaptation of SRSD to the use of ICT complying with theories and concepts, scientifically tested to be effective in improving the quality of writing skills. This adaptation includes the use of technology as a means of solving problems both in linear writing and in multimodal writing. According to evidence-based research, we are assuming that there exists an association between SRSD and ICT which can improve the quality of the writing process carried out by students.

|O professor é um agente chave na construção de processos de ensino-aprendizagem significativos para os seus alunos. O seu conhecimento, atitudes e perceção de autoeficácia podem assumir um papel determinante nas decisões em sala de aula, incluindo nas práticas de escrita dos seus alunos. Assim, realizou-se um estudo descritivo sobre as perceção de professores do 1.º Ciclo do Ensino Básico (CEB) quanto às suas práticas de escrita e uso das Tecnologias de Informação e Comunicação (TIC) em sala de aula, com recurso a entrevistas. Participaram 10 professoras, do 1.º CEB, a lecionar em 4 Agrupamentos de Escola do distrito de Braga e com uma média de 26 anos de experiência profissional. Os resultados obtidos revelaram que estas professoras apresentaram visões distintas quanto à avaliação da sua preparação para o ensino da escrita que varia entre pobre e muito boa. De igual modo constatou-se que estas professoras sentem necessidade de adquirir formação ao nível da intervenção na escrita, com e sem TIC, junto de alunos com problemas na escrita. Os principais motivos mencionados surgem tanto para a reciclagem de práticas como para adquirirem conhecimento de novos recursos e intervenções eficazes. Paralelamente reconheceram a importância da utilização das TIC nas intervenções junto de alunos com problemas na escrita, quer pelo interesse pessoal dos professores, quer pela importância destas ferramentas para a vida dos alunos. Este estudo pretende contribuir para a descrição e discussão quanto à preparação e formação de professores no sentido de se definirem caminhos que correspondem às necessidades de professores e alunos.

|Os professores assumem um papel determinante na decisão das atividades desenvolvidas em sala de aula. Nesse sentido, realizou-se um estudo descritivo sobre as opiniões dos professores do 1.º Ciclo do Ensino Básico (CEB) relativamente aos documentos orientadores do processo de ensino-aprendizagem e de que modo estes influenciam as suas práticas em sala de aula. Participaram 46 professores do 1.º CEB, a lecionar em 12 Agrupamentos de escolas públicas da região norte de Portugal continental. Os resultados evidenciaram que a maior parte dos professores utilizam os documentos oficiais de orientação da prática pedagógica, contudo não concordam com as metas curriculares atuais, considerando-as desajustadas à realidade. Este estudo revelou-se pertinente por reforçar a necessidade de os professores serem ouvidos numa futura elaboração ou adequação destes documentos.

This study in Spain is a step further of previous fieldwork (Matsumoto et al., 2016; Galera, Matsumoto and Poveda, 2016), which focused on the ways in which children and their families engage with and perceive new (online) technologies and to what extent technology empowers (or not) families. This second study focuses on a single overall research question: what changes in one year? This research question is addressed considering the four areas that structured the previous study: Use, Perceptions/Attitudes, Individual context, and Family context.

Using an online questionnaire among 785 parents (children 0-7 years) in the Netherlands we investigated a) whether parents experience problems when guiding children’s digital media usage, b) whether they feel competent in dealing with these problems, c) whether they need parenting support, and d) how these problems, competences and need for support are related to the characteristics of the parents, the family and the child. The analyses reveal that the parents’ experiences of problems is associated with negative views on media effects, the presence of older siblings living at home and occur especially when their child is active on social media.

Only touchscreens were used more often by children, when
parents perceived media as helpful in providing moments of rest for the child. In line with former studies, parents consistently applied co-use, supervision, active mediation, restrictive mediation, and monitoring, depending on positive and negative attitudes about media. The child’s media skills and media activities, however, had stronger relationships with parental mediation styles, whereas age was not related.

|The Technologisation of Childhood? Young Children and Technology in the Home||Children & Society||24||63–74||10.1111/j.1099-0860.2008.00180.x||We describe an 18-month empirical investigation of three- and four-year-old children’s uses of technology at home, based on a survey of 346 families and 24 case studies. The findings are reported in the context of social commentators’ anxieties about the ways in which childhood
is being transformed by technology. Although we report evidence of some parental disquiet about the role of technology in children’s lives, we illustrate some of the complexities in families’ attitudes to, and uses of, technology and conclude that it is not perceived by parents to be the threat to modern childhood that is claimed.

Fifty-one 12-, 24-, and 36-month-old children, each accompanied by 1 parent, were observed for 1 hr of free play in a laboratory space resembling a family room. For half of the hour, an adult-directed television program played in the background on a monaural television set. During the other half hour, the television was not on. Both the quantity and quality of parent-child interaction decreased in the presence of background television. These findings suggest one way in which early, chronic exposure to television may have a negative impact on development.||https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/j.1467-8624.2009.01337.x|

|Children under the age of two are more likely to watch inappropriate background media than older children||Acta Pædiatrica||103||546–552||DOI:10.1111/apa.12588||We performed a longitudinal analysis of mother–infant dyads participating in a larger parenting study. The primary dependent variable was maternal reports of watching habits from media diaries at 6, 14, 24 and 36 months. Independent variables were child age, programme content and whether the programme was turned on specifically for the
child. We analysed 3570 programme exposures in 527 children, mostly from television. Children were significantly more likely to actually watch programmes if they were older, if the content was coded as ‘educational young child’ or if the parent tuned on the programme specifically so the child could watch it. Children under the age of two were more likely than older children to watch background media that featured age-inappropriate content or had not been turned on for them to watch.

|Digital childhood: electronic media and technology use among infants, toddlers, and preschoolers||Pediatrics||119||5||e1006–e1015||METHODS. Data from a representative sample of parents of children aged 0 to 6 (N = 1051) in 2005 were used. Descriptive analyses, logistic regression, and multivariate analyses of covariance were used as appropriate.
RESULTS. On a typical day, 75% of children watched television and 32% watched videos/DVDs, for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes, on average. New media are also making inroads with young children: 27% of 5- to 6-year-olds used a computer (for 50 minutes on average) on a typical day. Many young children (one fifth of 0- to 2-year-olds and more than one third of 3- to 6-year-olds) also have a television in their bedroom. The most common reason given was that it frees up other televisions in the house so that other family members can watch their own shows (54%). The majority of children aged 3 to 6 fell within the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines, but 70% of 0- to 2-year-olds did not.

|Moved to learn: The effects of interactivity in a Kinect-based literacy game for beginning readers||Computers & Education||74||37–49||10.1016/j.compedu.2014.01.007||Digital reading games, including ones with new modes of interface such as the Kinect
for Xbox, may provide similar benefits in part by allowing dynamic in-game activities. However, these
activities may also be distracting and detract from learning. Children (ages 5–7 years, N=39) were randomly assigned to either i) jointly read a story with an adult, ii) have the story read by a character in a Kinect game, or iii) have the story read by a character in a Kinect game plus in-game activities. Both Kinect-Activities and Book Reading groups had significant gains for High Frequency Words, Active Decoding, and Total Reading Score, but only Kinect-Activities group had significant gain for Sight words (p < .05).

|Critical Lessons and Playful Literacies: Digital Media in PK–2 Classrooms||Language Arts||90||2||82-92||Using filmmaking as a conduit, the authors explore the possibilities of playful early literacy curricula where groups of children create a shared text by pretending, drawing, writing, making props, animating puppets, playing with Star Wars Legos and other popular media toys, and operating new technologies. In this article, they offer classroom examples to illuminate possibilities and to illustrate critical lessons about young children's developing new literacies. Classroom activity was video-recorded as teachers and researchers implemented play-based critical media literacy curricula in three contexts:
two classrooms at a university-run preschool, a K–1 multiage classroom at a public charter school, and a K–8 elective filmmaking class at the same
public charter school.

More than 20 carers of these ‘log children’, mostly mothers, were
interviewed individually about their child’s home context and use of ICT. 31
teachers were observed teaching at least one lesson, with some being
observed three times. These teachers were each interviewed at least twice. Roughly six children from each of the observed lessons took part
in a group interview following the lesson, and in addition at least one
group of children from the older year group in the school was interviewed
about ICT use in the school more generally.

on children that afford a new relation between play and learning. Through analyses of video observations of children in one child care center in Australia it was found that how children respond to the new demands depends upon their motive orientation as they engage with tablet technology. The concept of flickering is introduced to capture how the microgenetic movement between collective and individual imagining in an activity occurs, between being in
and out of an imaginary situation, and between concrete objects and virtual representations. Approximately 25 children (n = 53; range of 3.3 to 4.4; mean of 3.8 years) attend each session and most children come on two days per week. All the children's play associated with the resources was video recorded, resulting in 232 h of observational data.

|Learning Versus Play Or Learning Through Play? How Parents’ Imaginaries, Discourses And Practices Around ICTs Shape Children’s (Digital) Literacy Practices||MEDIA EDUCATION – Studi, ricerche, buone pratiche||7||2||261–280||10.14605/MED721606||This article builds on prior research by the authors with 70 families in
seven European countries. We compare lower income/less educated families and higher income/more educated families as they promote or hinder children’s (digital) literacy practices. The original research on which the present analysis is based investigated how children and parents engage with digital media, and the role these media play in family life, in 70 families (10 each in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Finland, Italy, the UK and Russia). The 70 families interviewed included 119 children aged 0-8, and indirectly covered older siblings (n = 38) aged between 9 and 20.

In Portugal, Belgium, Germany and Latvia qualitative in-depth interviews were conducted with 10 families each, including one child between 6 and 7 years old. It results in a total sample of 68 parents and 39 children from the target group aged 6 – 7 and 5 interviewed children under the age of 6. In addition, further context was provided by indirectly or by directly observing 32 children outside the target group in the interviewed families. Parents of young children mainly play the role of ‘gatekeepers’ when it comes to facilitating and constraining access and use of digital technologies. Parents’ perceptions of the efficacy of digital technologies as responsible entertainment and as educational tools influence the technologies available at home and accessible to the child.||http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/2043610616676024?journalCode=gsca|

|Just picking it up? Young children learning with technology at home||Cambridge Journal of Education||38||3||303–319||10.1080/03057640802287564||We describe a two year empirical investigation of three‐ and four‐year‐old children's uses of technology at home, based on a survey of 346 families and 24 case studies. We collected three main types of evidence: results from a survey,
a set of case studies and consultation with pre-school and primary education
professionals and policy-makers. The research focus was on three- and four-year-old children identified through the pre-schools they attended. In addition to some attitudinal questions which provided an initial exploration
of parents’ views of young children’s involvement with technology, the survey
produced basic demographic data which enabled us to categorise families with a household income of over £20,000 per annum as of advantaged socio-economic status and those with an income of less than £20,000 per annum as of disadvantaged socio-economic status.

|Comparing tablets and PCs in teaching mathematics: An attempt to improve mathematics competence in early childhood education||Preschool & Primary Education||4||2||241-253||http://dx.doi.org/10.12681/ppej.8779||The present study investigates and compares the influence of using computers and tablets in the development of mathematical competence in early childhood education. To implement the survey we conducted a 14-week intervention, which included one experimental and one control group. Children in both groups were taught mathematics as per the Greek curriculum for early childhood education, using either the same educational software which, depending on the group, running on computers or on tablets. In order to evaluate the mathematical performance of children we used the Test of Early Mathematics Ability (TEMA-
3). The sample consisted of 256 children in Greece.

|Play and creativity in young children’s use of apps||British Journal of Educational Technology||49||5||870–882||10.1111/bjet.12622||This study is the first to systematically investigate the extent to which apps for children aged 0–5 foster play and creativity. A survey was conducted with 2000
parents of under 5s in the UK. Over 17 hours of video films of
children using apps were analysed. Six families were visited five times (one family was visited four times). Each visit lasted up to 2 hours and consisted of videoed observations of children using tablets, conversations with children, semi
structured interviews with parents about children’s use of tablets, and “play and creativity” tours of the household, in which maps were constructed which outlined where children played and how tablet use related to that play. Parents, siblings and children were interviewed about the maps. In addition to this, still images were taken by researchers, and parents were invited to collect data themselves through the use of their smartphones. They were then questioned about these data. Finally, children aged 3 and over were able to choose to wear a “Go Pro” chestcam to film their use of tablets. Three children wore the chestcams: Amy, Jade and Kiyaan.
