In the last decade, in particular, understanding technology use within children's play-based experiences has been an important concern for early childhood education researchers and practitioners (Danby et al. 2018; Stephen and Edwards 2018). The World Economic Forum (2019) has highlighted the pressing issue of the twenty-first-century skills gap related to the digital revolution and ways that educators and researchers around the globe can address it through technology. The critical components of the twenty-first-century skill framework, which includes collaboration, communication, critical thinking and problem-solving, capitalise on teachers' appropriate use of technology and holds enormous promise to help foster these critical skills in young children.
