- The use of technology in digital era has influenced many factors including education. All stages of education including for the early childhood are now starting to implement digital based education. Therefore, it is important to investigate the influence of technology for the preschoolers. This study aims to provide information and review of the literatures on early childhood education related to digital platform and technology. This literature study was done using three databases, PubMed, Google scholar and SpringerLink. We evaluated paper published between 2010-2020 that used preschool children as subject and using English language. In total we found 13 papers that met the eligibility criteria. The use of technology to support education are mostly done via tablet and personal computer. Tablets more popular than computers because for young children it is easier to operate. Tablets equipped with appropriate software and supporting environment will be beneficial for children. On the other side, the use of technology has consequences for health and the development of the children especially because the declines in physical activity. In conclusion, the use of technology to support early childhood education is beneficial in one side but also detrimental on the other side. Children need support from both parents and teacher.
