CO:RE Theories Webinar
A multidisciplinary webinar on theories in relation to digital technologies in the lives of children and young people
The lives of children in Europe are becoming digital by default. Information and communication technologies are valued for the opportunities they afford to young generations for participation, skill development, learning and future employability. But how are children and young people engaging with digital technologies? What are the impacts of digital technologies on children’s and young people’s health, lifestyles, well-being, safety and security?
This webinar will contrast diverse approaches to thinking about the digital world in relation to children and youth, drawing on four newly funded Horizon 2020 projects on “the impact of technological transformations on children and youth”: DIGYMATEX, DigiGen, ySKILLS and CO:RE. How does each project conceptualise children and young people, digital technologies, and the risks and opportunities that arise? How does each project hope to contribute to knowledge and to the development of EU policies?
