We've seen the memes, charged the IPads and updated our Netflix subscriptions. 2020 was the year of children being plonked in front of the TV as caregivers struggled to keep their children occupied while also working full-time from home. Or was it???? Thread (1/n)
We'll soon find out! Today we (@DimitrovaNeven1 @chbergma and so many wonderful others) uploaded the pre-registration of our analysis plan to examine children's digital media use during the Covid-19 lockdown. osf.io/jvnua (2/n)
Cross-country data (Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Oslo, U.K., Turkey, Israel, Bulgaria, Saudi Arabia...) examining 8 to 36 month-olds' access to digital media during lockdown (3/n)
did children have more access to digital media during the lockdown; did access vary with severity of lockdown; how did parents feel about this; did children ask for more media access; what, when and with whom were children watching/using digital media (4/n)
This is a spin-off to @julien__mayor and @NataliaKartush1's wonderful project examining language development during lockdown so we also get to look at the influence of any potential differences in digital media use (pre- to during lockdown) on language development
In essence your one-stop-shop with regards to children's digital media use during the 2020 lockdown. Watch this space! All data collected, pre-processing starts on Friday.
