Technology and Media in Children's Development
October 27 - 30, 2016, Irvine, California
Welcome to the online program! We are delighted that you will be joining us for what promises to be an outstanding special topic meeting in Irvine. The use of digital devices and social media is ubiquitous in the environment of 21st century children. From the moment of birth (and even in utero), children are surrounded by media and technology. This meeting will provide a forum for intellectual and interdisciplinary exchange on media and technology in development and is designed to appeal to a range of researchers from the seasoned media researcher to technology developers to developmentalists who need to understand more about the role of technology and media in children’s lives. Please browse the program and create an itinerary to maximize your learning opportunities at the meeting.
See you in Irvine!
