[ecrea] Digitising early childhood international conference - call for papers

Tue Jan 24 09:07:36 GMT 2017


Contemporary 0-8 year olds are inventing what it is to have a digital childhood, and in doing so are introducing families, schools and policy makers to new ways of thinking, doing and being. This conference constructs a research trajectory through these uncertainties and also aims to build bridges across the different discipline interests and many strands of research in this area. It will forge a new way forward and consolidate the base of what we already know, revealing what we have yet to investigate and address.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Sonia Livingstone

Professor Jackie Marsh

Dr Donell Holloway          Dr Brian O’Neill

Professor Lelia Green      Professor Caroline Barrett-Pugh

Ass. Professor Tama Leaver
