Short Abstract:
Children and adolescents increasingly turn to mobile media devices, the smartphone in particular, to stay connected with family and friends and access a variety of digital media contents and services including social media, music, videos, and games. The everytime-and-everywhere-access to mobile media has changed children’s and adolescents’ everyday life with potential implications on their health and development. The preconference wants to address these issues both from a theoretical and methodological perspective.

 

Pre-conference topics:

  • Role of mobile media in children’s and adolescents’ everyday life

  • Methodological challenges of research on mobile media use

  • Parental mediation and monitoring of mobile media use

  • Impact of mobile media on children’s and adolescents’ psycho-physical health and development

  • Mobile media and children’s and adolescents’ privacy

  • Mobile media contents and activities: new phenomena or old habits

  • Use of mobile media in school

 

Submissions:
Abstracts of 500 words (excluding tables, figures, and references) should outline the research topic as well as the theoretical and methodological approach. All abstracts will be subject to double-blind peer review. Please submit the abstract including names, affiliations, and contact details (email) in an edible format by 30 April 2018 to anne.linda.camerini@usi.ch.
