Forum: A Global Research Agenda for Children’s Rights in the Digital Age [AUDIO]

October 7th, 2013

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.
