In this webinar we explain the theoretical ideas underpinning the Digital Play Framework, including Vygotsky’s thinking about tool mediation and Hutt’s ideas about epistemic and ludic play. We reflect on our research with young children using technologies and how this led us to combine the ideas of Vygotsky and Hutt to create the Digital Play Framework. We then provide some examples of how the Digital Play Framework can be used in relation to different technologies, such as touchscreen tablets and cameras. We reflect on how the Digital Play Framework can be used by teachers in early childhood settings to help achieve curriculum goals.
