Digitalising daycare institutions and the development of young children’s digital literacy



What are the psychological and ethical implications of digitalising daycare institutions, in particular for children’s, parents’ and other educators’ self-understanding and conduct of everyday life? How are relational notions of caretaking, of development, and of learning, changing alongside increasing reliance on digital interfaces for both administrative and pedagogical purposes in Early Childhood Education and Care? Social psychologist Niklas A. Chimirri (Roskilde University), member of the Danish Centre for Research in Early Childhood Education and Care, explores these questions by contrasting research in German and Danish daycare centres.
