Abstract: In the 21st century technological world of computers and cell phones, mobile technology is here to stay. With that acknowledgement, educators need to find the most appropriate and effective methods to infuse the use of technology tools into the classroom setting. Through this survey research project, the researchers are delving into the mobile technology tools used by 2-to 5-year-olds and how parents are guiding their children with interactive media. Data will be analyzed to reveal how parents offer guidance to their child when using interactive media together, parents’ perspectives for screen time for their child, and which mobile devices are currently being used by their child. Preliminary survey results will be discussed in the roundtable format.
