Early Years Maths Digital technology and the early years | National Literacy Trust Technology can play a role in supporting early communication, language and literacy. It can offer new learning opportunities, through ebooks, apps, and even video calling. We strongly advise that, just like a book, technology is used as a tool for learning and play, rather than as a replacement for adult interaction. Our research shows that, when used appropriately, technology can be an important route in to reading for certain groups of children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds and boys. For parents Our Words for Life website has advice and tips for parents on how to use technology with their child in the early years.Our Literacy Apps website also helps parents find the right apps to help children develop good communication and literacy skills. For early years practitioners Along with these downloadable resources, we have created these videos on using technology in early years settings.
