Exploring the Impact of Digital Technologies on Families
Wed 9 November 2016, 10:00 – 12:30 GMT
Despite the growing presence of digital technologies in our lives, there have been few opportunities to reflect on the changes these technologies have brought to our personal and family lives.
A recent programme ‘Digital Families Across the Lifecourse’ explored these issues by drawing on recent research in this area, looking at three life stages - childhoods, parenting and older age. http://www.crfr.ac.uk/digital-families-across-the-lifecourse/
Discussions were informed by a specially commissioned film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUBWrUEMWI8
This event will launch a Digital Families Research Network, to provide a forum for ongoing discussions and knowledge exchange, to identify areas for further research and to foster collaborations to deliver new research."
