The features of motor activity and functional capabilities of children aged 6-7 years with different levels of informatization of the environment were revealed. The results obtained indicate that boys, on average, are characterized by a higher index of informatization of the environment in comparison with girls. It was revealed that with an increase in the time of using digital technologies in everyday life, there is a decrease in the considered indicators of physical activity and adaptive capabilities of children.
Keywords: physical activity, digital technologies, informatization index, functional capabilities.
