Digital devices, such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones, are becoming a part of almost everyone’s lives, even children. Today, it is very common to see young children interacting with these digital devices everywhere either at home, in the car, or at a shopping center. For this reason, this senior capstone research project examines how important it is for elementary school students in the Monterey County to have digital devices and how they use them. Through use of literature review, interviews with teachers and parents, and anonymous surveys with elementary students, the findings reveal that digital devices have a big impact on students’ success that make teachers, students, and parents’ lives easier.
