The annual conference of the Children’s Research Network on the theme ‘Growing up in the digital environment’ will take place in Dublin on Thursday the 6th of December 2018. Children and young adults today are distinct from their predecessors as they are the first generation to grow up ‘entirely digital’, where their daily environment is continuously shaped by technology. Growing up in the digital age provides a diverse range of opportunities and risks for children and young people across many areas of their lives, and is an emergent area for policy making, practice and research with children and young adults. The conference will be a mix of practical workshops and traditional presentations.
The Children's Research Network now invites abstract submissions from all sectors (i.e. academia, statutory, community, voluntary) in Ireland and Northern Ireland, for oral and/or poster presentation or one-hour workshop. The closing date for abstract submissions is Friday 14th of September 2018. More information, including a full list of subthemes, is available here.
