Keywords:Child, Cognitive Behavioral, Technology
Technological tools are part of contemporary life, so it is common for children to have a very early contact with some kind of electronic device such as mobile phone, tablet, computer or video game. Our paper has as its theme the influence of technology on children development and deals with the relationship between childhood and technology in our time and its implications. Our general aim was to contextualize the influence of the use of technology on children development, and, as specific objectives, to identify which areas are affected by its use, to analyze the consequences of this influence in childhood, and understand the relationship between childhood and technology. The problem is presented by the following guiding question: "What do the authors and professionals in the field say about this?" We adopted as a methodology the bibliographic review, characterized as qualitative descriptive. We concluded that the excessive use of technological tools is detrimental to children's education and development. However, when used moderately, they do have a positive influence and may offer benefits, including in teaching-learning area.
