Overview

The impact of ICT transformations on everyday life and well-being of the digital generation (children and young people) at home, at school, during leisure time and in wider community.
The PhD research proposal should be aimed at developing knowledge how children and young people use and are affected by ICT transformations in their everyday life. One goal is to understand why and how well-being of some children and young people benefit from ICT use while others seem to be impacted negatively. The focus should be on children and young people (from 0-18 years of age), a group growing up today that is described as the digital generation. The methodological approach should be aimed at participatory methodologies that move the focus from “research on” children and young people to a focus of “research with” children and young people. The PhD research proposal should deal with a set of systems (one or several of them) that are important in young people’s lives – family (the home), leisure, education and the wider community (civic participation). The PhD position is linked with the H2020 DigiGen project.
