The report ”Young Children (0-8) and Digital Technology” from Aalborg University in Denmark shows that children in the age of 5-6 are using digital technologies as a natural integrated part of the ordinary day. However, internet is seen as too abstract, which makes the children focus on playing games and watch film and TV at known locations. Malene Chalotte Larsen, one of the researchers behind the report concludes: The children’s use of media and technology is similar to the use of traditional TV. Their use of media is thereby mostly passive or consuming and less producing. From this result the researchers challenge parents to actively and productively participate when children are using media and that schools, libraries and museum focus on the creative makerspace potential of digital media.
