Ask an expert: Understanding childhood in the 21st Century

Webinar | 12.Nov.2020 05:00 PM

Is it true that risky outdoor play is important for children? COVID-19 has changed how we think about physical distancing, so in these times, can a hug emoji stand in for a hug? How can we balance the risks and opportunities children face in the digital world? And importantly, how can we let children be children and learn from taking risks and making mistakes?

Join us for an “Ask an expert” webinar to discuss these questions and more. With a panel of international experts, we will explore aspects of modern childhood including the importance of play, the key role of good relationships and social connection, and trends in digital technologies.

In this webinar, we will hear from:

  • Tracey Burns: Senior Analyst, OECD Centre for Educational Research and Innovation, Paris, France.
  • Mariana Brussoni: Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia, Canada.
  • Catrin Finkenauer: Professor of Youth Studies, and scientific director of the Utrecht University interdisciplinary research center Dynamics of Youth, the Netherlands.
  • Brian O’Neill: Director, Research, Enterprise and Innovation Services at Technological University Dublin, Ireland.
