Digital Childhoods

Digital Childhoods was a programme of events that ran during 2011.

The programme centred around the themes of Childhoods and Parenting, Playing and Learning, and Creating and Communicating. It was based on a partnership between the University of Strathclyde and the University of Stirling in conjunction with CBeebies, the London Knowledge Lab, Futurelab and Learning & Teaching Scotland.

A research briefing on Rethinking Young Children and Technology was produced for the first event and is available here.
