Worldwide, children’s digital access and literacy is growing apace. Yet many of the creative, informative, interactive and participatory features of the digital environment remain substantially underused, and this is a particular challenge in lower-income countries and among socially excluded children.
In this talk, Sonia Livingstone — professor in the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics — argues that the time has come to conduct robust, cross-nationally comparative research to guide policy and practice in maximizing the opportunities and minimizing the harms associated with ICT for children around the world. Livingstone’s talk is followed by a discussion with Stephen Balkam, Urs Gasser, Amanda Lenhart, and others.
