Family and community perspectives on digital technology use by young children: phase 1

Overview

The first phase of this project will capture what is known about the current perspectives of the community regarding digital technology use by young children, including parents, professionals, service providers and industry. The project will synthesise what is known about current perspectives, and methods used to capture these, to inform future research to enable effective translation of evidence-based guidance to support children’s health, wellbeing and development in a digital society.


Project aims

  • systematically review available evidence on the methods and approaches used to investigate perspectives of digital technology use by young children
  • systematically review available evidence on parental, family, and health professional’s perspectives of digital technology use by young children
  • investigate parental, family and health professional’s perspectives of digital technology use by young children using existing datasets


Project design

This project involves conducting a systematic review of the available evidence on the methods and approaches used to investigate perspectives of digital technology use by young children.  Additionally, we will conduct a systematic review of the available evidence on parental, family, and health professional’s perspectives of digital technology use by young children.

In this project we will also investigate parental, family and health professional’s perspectives of digital technology use by young children using data collected as part of pre-existing projects.
