Abstract

Young generations have started interacting with digital technologies earlier and earlier. From the moment of entry into the school context, the child is the bearer of his own experiential background, also gained through interaction with the media, it becomes legitimate to claim an educational recognition of the acquired rights and skills gained during his personal history. From the first years of life, the child has the opportunity to naturally acquire the basic skills to interface with televisions and mobile devices through continuous symbiotic relationships. In particular, the television medium as well as mobile devices and apps constitute, even for those children who have not acquired yet a basic literacy, an extensive informative and educational resource which is not intentional. Considering that scientific evidence shows that, thanks to the remarkable plasticity of the brain, the activities carried out during the first years of life impact the future development, it is necessary to ask ourselves about the risks and benefits of media exposure, evaluating adults’ role and their educational responsibilities.
