Understanding ICT effects on children
Children are attracted to digital technology, but it is not yet clear how digitally mature they are. How is children's behaviour affected by ICT and to what extent? The EU-funded DIGYMATEX project intends to offer evidence-based instruments that can support understanding and estimating ICT effects on children's conduct. The first instrument consists of an advanced and ready for the market Digital Youth Maturity Index (DYMI), a cloud-based open-access instrument. DYMI will contribute in the development of an inclusive taxonomy that will inform stakeholders on the long-term impact of ICT on children and young people's behaviour. The second tool consists of a solution based on the development of the DiGYou programme. Both tools will contribute to a safer and profitable use of ICT.
