Abstract: Research on technology in early childhood/teacher education should illuminate how, and to what extent, early childhood teachers can implement digital technologies as a developmentally appropriate tool for learning. This will require developing research agendas that are child-centered (investigating the digital competencies and use patterns of young children and their families as well as the effects of media on young children) and teacher-centered (investigating use of digital technologies in early childhood teacher education as well as the implications of child-centered research for teacher preparation).
