UVic Ideafest Talk: "E-Children and @Youth: The Promise and Perils of Electronic Media"

Join CFYS Fellows, the CFYS Director, and other UVic researchers for a discussion about how electronic media are changing childhood, from cyberbullying to supporting student learning. As electronic media become increasingly omnipresent, users are getting younger and younger. Apps targeting tots, smartphone use among middle schoolers and therapeutic uses of technology are just a few recent areas of study for UVic researchers.

Presenters include Sarah Macoun and Ulrich Mueller (Psychology), Hélène Cazes (French), Donna McGhie-Richmond, Jen Poole and Laurissa Evancio Barker (Educational Psychology and Leadership), Sam Liu (Exercise Science & Physical Health Education) and Frederick Grouzet (Director of Centre for Youth & Society).
