    Long term effects of interactive digital media on children will be tested by adopting a qualitative approach, during which children's natural environment will be documented and analyzed.  

    Practical aspects of media usages will be investigated during the three years of the study, through cognitive, emotional, social, and motor development of children in the early childhood;

    • Emergence of interactive digital media usage in the first year of life.
    • Becoming digital media users with or instead of old media.
    • New media usages and contents (Tablet, iPad) will be compared with old media usages and contents (book and TV)
    • Characteristics of parental mediation in children's media usage over time and social interaction in the family, who shapes digital experiences.

    Findings will show a broad picture of how various media are used in early childhood and the implications on children's development.
