11-13 June 2017 (La Cristalera-UAM)
This Summer School is organized under the DigiLitEY Cost Action (http://digilitey.eu/) and, continuing the work of the first summer school celebrated in 2016, focuses on exploring the place and contributions of collaborative and participatory methodologies in the study of the digital literacies and multimodal practices of young children. The 2017 Summer School will take place in La Cristalera (www.lacristalera.com) a residential research facility the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid runs in Miraflores de la Sierra, a mountain village in Northeast Madrid (Spain).
The summer school places special emphasis on hands-on and interactive sessions (which we call “Workshops”) around particular research themes. This training event is aimed at advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students and emergent researchers who are interested in understanding children’s digital practices through participatory/qualitative/ethnographic research and will help participants gain an understanding of how to design/carry out feasible and ethically-grounded research with young children around their digital literacies, practices and experiences. The Summer School will also be an opportunity for the COST Action, particularly in connection to the interests of WG5, to take stock of emergent methodological and ethical concerns among researchers and professionals working with young children and digital technologies. This summer school is co-organized by Spanish members of the COST Action and UAM research group “Infancia Contemporanea”. Full program: (pdf)
