Digital Play in Early Childhood Education: Supporting children's relational information literacy

With increased access to digital technologies, young children are required to make decisions about what information is useful or accurate, and how they might use this information.

This e-learning module is designed to help early childhood educators understand and use relational information literacy (RIL) processes to support young children’s learning as they engage in digital play.

The e-learning videos and suite of resources introduce the Digital Play 3C Questioning Framework as a tool to develop young children’s RIL skills and provide real-world examples of the 3C Questioning Framework in action.
