20世纪下半叶，由于互联网、移动电话和电脑的广泛使用，数字通信和计算技术发生了显著变化。互联网和数字媒体从很小的时候起就对大多数人的沟通实践不可或缺，对他们的信息空间也很重要。人们经常注意到，年轻人自然倾向于新技术，他们在信息和通信技术和互联网接入方面的经验正在上升(Kucirkova, Littleton和Kyparissiadis, 2017)。因此，来自世界各地以图形表示为支持的过多信息往往从很小的时候就影响儿童的性别认同。视频和图像的数字压缩得到了重视，MPEG和JPEG编码使其成为可能。
在我看来，数字技术已经彻底改变了世界，随着越来越多的孩子上网，它改变童年的能力也在增强。数字技术让孩子们能够接触到影响他们思考过程的信息，并帮助他们建立性别认同。然而，性别陈规定型观念教给孩子文化对他们的期望。媒体中不断出现同样的概念(Menon, Schellhorn和Lowe, 2012)。人们常说男孩比女孩强，男人在某些工作上做得更好。我观察到，这些信息能够产生影响，父母很难反击;这主要是因为这些信息是在孩子最容易接受受影响的发展阶段被准确地记录下来的。在年轻人中，这样的描述会导致有害的结论和错误的假设。
Digital includes electronic technology that is involved in the generation, storage and processing of data in a positive and negative state. The emergence of technology was in the form of tools and the initial machines that were created were the telegraph and the analytical engine. Digital technology gained prominence with the prominence of the personal computer. Digital technology is the shift from analogue electronic and mechanical technology to digital electronics that commenced between the 1950s and 1970s when the digital computers were adopted and proliferated for digital record maintenance (Brennan, 2018).
A notable change was initiated in digital communication and computing technology in the latter half of the 20th century by the wide spread use of the internet, cellular phones and computers. The internet and digital media are integral to most people’s communication practice from a very young age and significant to their information spaces. It has often been noted that young people are naturally predisposed to new technologies and their experience with the information and communication technology and the access to internet are on the rise (Kucirkova, Littleton and Kyparissiadis, 2017). Hence, excessive information from all over the world supported with graphic representation often influences the gender identity among children from a very young age. Digital compression of video and image has gained prominence and was made possible by the MPEG and JPEG coding.
Animation has often taken the support of digitalisation with movies and cartoons being created with the extensive use of computers and the content made available to viewers on digital platforms. Digital technology makes it possible to scan or transcribe manuscripts and books in digital forms that are subsequently searched and accessed online or by the use of an electronic device thus making content available anywhere easily.
It is my opinion that digital technology has revolutionised the world and as more number of children go online, it has the increased capacity of changing childhood. Digital technology gives children access to information that affects their thinking process and helps them establish gender identities. Gender stereotypes are, however, teaching children what is expected of them by the culture. There is constant exposure to the same concepts in the media (Menon, Schellhorn and Lowe, 2012). It is often depicted that boys are ahead of girls and men are better at some work. I have observed that these messages are able to make an impact and are hard for parents to counter; this is mainly because the messages are timed at the precise moment for development of the kid when they are most receptive to being influenced. Among young adults, such characterisation results in harmful conclusions and false assumptions.
