Abstract This chapter is about the kinds of thinking prompted when young children engage with a broad range of digital technologies. It will consider the cognitive functions which educational games seek to develop and the social, emotional and meta-cognitive thinking that is associated with playing with technologies. The chapter will draw on empirical studies about young children learning and playing with technological resources and toys at home and in educational settings.
