Tablet Use Beneficial To Young Children’s Literacy Learning

Bitescience | 11 December 2014 

A study published in the Australian Journal of Education explored whether access to tablets in the home environment relate to young children’s literacy skills. Results indeed show that 3- to 5-year-olds who have access to a tablet at home have greater literacy skills (better letter sound knowledge and name writing skills). Interestingly, the amount of time children spend on a tablet is no indication for better literacy skills.
