Screen media are increasingly common in young children's life. It is therefore essential to understand the impact of specific technologies such as tablets or e-books for literacy and the best ways to include these technologies in children's routine at home, in childcare or in the classroom. Emerging practices and their implications for parents, teachers and policy makers are reviewed in this topic.
