New blog on parenting and digital media
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has recently launched a new blog on parenting and digital media. It aims to give parenting advocates, researchers and parents themselves easy access to cutting-edge research, including from LSE's own current project on Parenting for a Digital Future.
The blog is split into three sections:
On our minds looks at breaking news and public debates such as how can parents keep up now that kids are diversifying away from Facebook, and observing how groups of young people come to sometimes surprising conclusions when debating digital rights and a fair internet.
From our notes draws on current research with children, families and digital media in the UK and US. It provides an overview and ‘top tips' from the research on how parents manage kids' media use and looks at how playing computer games might bring long-term benefits when kids move from digital hobbies to jobs.
Finally, the Around the world section includes postings from guest bloggers reflecting on digital technology for today's global children.
