In this report, we summarize the activities and conclusions developed during a 2-day think tank / workshop around ethical issues in relation to digital media, research and work with young children.
The event included researchers from the DigiLitEY COST Action and local stakeholders from Spain. Day 1 of the workshop focused on researcher perspectives and identified key ethical issues in relation to: informed consent, confidentiality, boundaries, data storage, reciprocity and dialogic processes in research. Participants also addressed how ethical issues are framed in the introduction of digital technology in early childhood settings, by industry and in policy – including cross-national differences.
Day 2 piloted a workshop format to explore ethical issues with practitioners and local stakeholders that addressed ethical concerns, how these are conceptualized and how ethical issues can be communicated.
Date: Day 1: 30 November (10:00h – 17:00h); Day 2: 1 December 2017 (10:00h- 16:00h) Venue: “La Corrala” Cultural Centre, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), Madrid, Spain.
