Resumé

This paper reports on a study exploring the outcomes from children’s play with technology in early
childhood learning practices. The paper addresses questions related to how digital technology can
foster creativity in early childhood learning environments. It consists of an analysis of children’s
interaction with the KidSmart furniture focusing on digital creativity potentials and play values
suggested by the technology. The study applied a qualitative approach and included125 children
(aged three to five), 10 pedagogues, and two librarians. The results suggests that educators should
sensitively consider intervening when children are interacting with technology, and rather put emphasize
into the integration of the technology into the environment and to the curriculum in order
to shape playful structures for children’s digital creativity.
