A day in the digital lives of children aged 0-3

In this video, Julia Gillen discusses the methodology used for a project ‘A day in the digital lives of children aged 0-3’ (Summary Report is available here). Julia Gillen is a Reader in Digital Literacies in the Department of Linguistics and English Language and Director of the Lancaster Literacy Research Centre at University of Lancaster.

The project uses the ‘Day in the Life’ (DITL) methodological approach (Gillen et al., 2007; Gillen & Cameron, 2010) – using a combination of interviews, field notes and video recordings to collect data – with the focus being on one day in the life of the child and their family.

Gillen describes the methodology including the theoretical framing behind it as well as advantages and disadvantages of using the methodology in a study.
