The aim of this project is to investigate the ways that young children (4 to 7 years old) interact with familiar discrete programmable digital toys in a free play setting. This research project is designed to connect with the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum through the following content descriptors: Processes Skills - Follow, describe and represent a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve simple problems (ACTDIP004); Knowledge and Understanding - Identify, use and explore digital systems (hardware and software components) for a purpose (ACTDIK001).
