In this presentation, Kirsten Schlebbe deals with the question what participation means in the context of participatory research and which different forms of participation exist. Therefore, she discusses different models that try to define the various degrees or levels of participation in research projects involving children or young people.

She started working on her PhD in 2016 and is advised by Prof. Dr. Elke Greifeneder. Her research focuses on young children’s digital information behavior. In particular, she studies how young children use and interact with digital and especially mobile technologies.
