Digitalising Childhoods workshop program involves a network of five universities in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland and aims to increase cutting-edge research knowledge of the potentials and pressing issues of digitalisation on children’s (aged 0-18 years) participation, learning, and wellbeing in Nordic societies and beyond. This aim is realised by an international, multi-sector and multi-disciplinary workshop programme organized during the years 2019-2020;

WORKSHOP 1

Focuses on inequalities and opportunities of digitalisation for children’s learning and education, civic engagement, social life and leisure.

WORKSHOP 2

Focuses on the impact of digitalisation on children’s physical and mental wellbeing, health, and safety, security and privacy.

WORKSHOP 3

Focuses on research methods and ethics to study childhood in the digital age including surveillance and tracking. The outcomes will be communicated via academic articles and practice-orientated publications as well as policy briefs that will inform multiple stakeholders.
