DigiGen researchers are joining colleagues in Hong Kong for the Digital Citizenship Plus (DC+) seminar series. The DC+ seminar series, an initiative of the Learning and Assessment for Digital Citizenship project that is conducted jointly by colleagues of the Faculty of Education at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), is designed as a platform for dissemination and intellectual explorations of research related to digital citizenship.
The series will explore the impact of digital media on the everyday life of children and youth, and on their development as citizens in an increasingly technology-intensive and globally-connected world. The seminars will report on current research findings, critically examine conceptual and methodological issues and explore research trends and opportunities related to digital citizens and digital citizenship.
The seminars that will discuss DigiGen research are:
- 24 May 2021 – Family SES and the Digital Wellbeing of Learners
- 7 June 2021 – Youth Social and Political Participation and Agency in the Digital Age
- 21 June 2021 – Growing Up Digital and Digital Social Capital
- 5 July 2021 – Familial Ecosystem and Student Well-being
The seminars will be organised online from 09:30 to 10:45 CEST. For more information about the individual seminars, speakers and how to register, visit the Learning and Assessment for Digital Citizenship project website.
The Learning and Assessment for Digital Citizenship project coordinator is Professor Nancy Law who is a member of DigiGen’s international advisory committee (IAC). You can find more information on our IAC here.
