i-DAT’s Dr Dylan Yamada-Rice and George Simms present at the ESRC Digital Good for Kids Network. 10/4/2023
On Friday 13th October 10:00-12:30 Online we will host a series of talks and discussion to mark the start of our project exploring children’s understanding of digital good / bad. The intentions is to explore topics related to equity, sustainability and resilience:
- What do children aged 8-13 years consider are the positive and negative aspects of the digital devices that they use?
- What do kids know about AI?
- Who do they think are the workers connected to machine learning?.
- Do children believe digital practices need to change as a result of the climate crisis?
- What are kids key social concerns and how are their digital lives connected to this?.
- How would children aged 8-13 wish to change the digital devices they own in the future?
To reserve a spot please email: Dr Dylan Yamada-Rice <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This is a project funded by the ESRC Digital Good Network to explore children’s attitudes towards notions of digital good/bad through hybrid arts practice.
