(Abstracts Submission Extended to 31 May)


Contemporary 0-8 year olds are inventing what it is to have a digital
childhood, and in doing so are introducing families, schools and policy
makers to new ways of thinking, doing and being.  This conference
constructs a research trajectory through these uncertainties and also aims
to build bridges across the different discipline interests and many strands
of research in this area.  It will forge a new way forward and consolidate
the base of what we already know, revealing what we have yet to investigate
and address.
