Children, Youths And Digital Media Webinars
Webinar International Semester
CHILDREN, YOUTHS AND DIGITAL MEDIA WEBINARS
Target audience: school teachers and scholars, graduate and postgraduate students from areas such as communication, education, psychology, sociology etc.
The digital media shapes contemporary social life, influencing how children and young people learn, interact, and perceive themselves and one another. Taking into account the lack of cognitive, social, emotional, and physical maturity, children and youths are considered more vulnerable to risks and harm in the digital environment. However, as early and intense users of new technologies, they usually find new opportunities in engaging to the digital sphere such as constructing identities, building social capital, learning technological skills or engaging in civic movements. So, being active and participating in the digital world is a right of children and crucial to them to become participative citizens in our digital society. This series of webinars brings together some of the greatest experts in Portugal to debate central aspects on the relationship between children, youths and digital media.

Children and digital go to school: mediating and enabling the possibilities

This lesson starts by analyzing the social and technological contexts in which children nowadays grow up.

Through examples collected in research, I will guide participants to think critically about the challenges at stake and mediation approaches to foster a better digital environment for children.
