While much of the rhetoric around children and technology for the last 10 years has been all about “screen time”, researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child with a node here at UOW are now investigating children’s digital experiences, to best support children growing up in a rapidly changing digital world.
Join us as we host a panel of experts to explore the changing role of ‘digital’ in Australian children’s lives. We take a look at the responsibilities of digital producers, as well as the children themselves and their adults, in creating and consuming digital experiences which enhance child development.
