We have created a dynamic ethics tool, based on 5 ethics principles that are useful to consider when designing the ethical framework for research about young children’s digital literacy practices. The tool considers each principle (on the left) in relation to different participants and research sites (at the base of screen), with critical questions to act as a prompt for discussion and reflection. The tool is inspired by ESRC Ethics Principles Chart.
