CURRENT AND COMPLETED PROJECTS
The Digital Youth Research Lab administers several research projects based in Australia and the United Kingdom.
South Australian DIGITAL YOUTH Survey
This research project is funded by the Australian Research Council and explores how young people use digital technology and how this changes over the course of adolescence. We are interested in how different factors (individual, social, and contextual) shape the kinds and extent of technology use, and in particular, patterns of internet usage that may be risky.
ADELAIDE Digital SAFETY AND PREVENTION PROJECT
This world-first research project explores how young people experience regulation in their digital lives. In particular, we consider how young people respond to different forms of digital oversight, monitoring and interventions, as well as evaluate the effectiveness of such practices on subsequent behavior.
