Abstract

This research poster explores and Illustrates the short-term and long-term effects of children using technology such as smart phones and tablets. Nowadays, more and more young children can be seen using their parents’ smart phone, tablet, or some other kind of electronic device before they even go to pre-school. I will show on my poster, that will be done using graphic design tools, a figure of a young child and have infographics along with other graphic elements pointing to certain parts of the body such as the brain to illustrate my findings of how using these technology devices affect these children’s brain development, physical development such as hand/eye coordination, and their attention span. I will also show through these illustrations what the benefits are, for young children to use technology at such a young age, and what the disadvantages are as well. We will find out if is more beneficial in the long run or if it presents more challenges that these children will have to overcome when they get older.
