Abstract: For many, technology is seen as a threat to children's play and many early childhood services ban technology and/or choose to limit play arising from technology (e.g. superhero play). Given that the most recent guidelines in Australia suggest that children's access to technology should be limited, and that children under two should not have any access to technology (Department of Health and Ageing, 2009), there is some justification for that position. However, there is much recent research that suggests such a position is no longer relevant and that appropriate access to technology is beneficial (Donahoo, 2014; Donohue, 2015; Straker and Howie, 2014).
