Digital devices and social media have become ubiquitous in the environment of 21st century children. From the moment of birth (and even in utero), children and adolescents are surrounded by—and increasingly interacting with—media and technology. This meeting will provide a forum for intellectual interdisciplinary exchange on several aspects of media and technology in relation to children’s development. It is designed to appeal to a wide range of researchers, including those in media and communications, technology design and development, developmentalists, and others who seek to understand the role that technology and media do and can have in children’s lives.
