Together with the partners from the DIGYMATEX consortium researchers from the University of Vienna, provide a psychological view on the use of digital technology by kids.
Researchers with the DIGYMATEX project at the Freie Universität Berlin, Tim Schulz van Endert and Peter N. C. Mohr, found a positive relationship between hours of smartphone use and impulsive decision making, through an experiment focusing on delayed gratification.
DIGYMATEX has named four highly esteemed researchers to its Ethics Advisory Board: Anja Achtziger of Zeppelin University, Lapo Mola of the Université Côte Azure, Sakari Lemola of Bielefeld University, and Terhi-Anna Wilska of the University of Jyväskylä.
DIGYMATEX researchers Melissa Bohnert and Dr Pablo Gracia, both of Trinity College Dublin’s Department of Sociology, recently published a study in Child Indicators Research Journal.
The EU-funded DIGYMATEX project was presented and discussed together with two other sister projects in a webinar focusing on Digital Technologies in the Lives of Children and Young People.
