LiFT: Learning for Families through Technology

Millions of children around the world are using digital learning technologies claiming to have developmental significance at critical points in their lives. A research programme, funded by Ferrero, will develop a rigorous programme of research to examine key issues in learning through digital technologies so as to better understand and improve this process.

The research programme will explore vocabulary development, numeracy and parental engagement that will encourage family interaction and collaborative learning on children’s, educational, digital technology.

The overall aim of LiFT is to benefit society through the development of leading research that, when completed, will provide better understanding of the nature of learning through digital technology and will serve as an important step in encouraging families’ engagement, in their children’s education, through play.
