Structure of presentation This presentation will be in the form of a collective, rather than the traditional symposium format of several connected papers. Our collective presentation will have three parts. Part 1 We will begin with an introduction to the project, the Day in the Digital Lives of Children aged 0-3, by members of DigiLitEY Working Group 1 Children in Homes and Communities. We will briefly explain the rationale for the project, before moving to the project design including methodological and ethical dilemmas. Part 2 The second part of the presentation will centre on two technologies in the home: the TV and the tablet. Each presenter will briefly describe the place of the TV and tablet in the family studied in terms of children’s engagement with the technology during the ‘day’ and the family’s attitudes towards it as explored through direct observation and interview data. This will be illustrated through still images where permissions allow and/or diagrams. Part 3 Our discussant, David Poveda, a member of the research team, will draw some threads together, discusses implications for understanding the place of technologies in the lives of young children and their families, and open up the discussion with the audience
