DigiLitEY Research Methodology Database
This database is a tool designed as part of the COST Action "The digital literacy and multimodal practices of young children" (DigiLitEY) (
). We seek to create a repository of relevant research on how children between 0-8 years of age engage with digital media, including research conducted with other social actors relevant to the lives of children (e.g. parents, teachers, digital content designers, etc.).
This database is particularly concerned with carefully indexing studies and documents according to issues connected to the research design and characteristics of each study, so users can retrieve and organize the literature according to methodological criteria. Therefore, we ask that you carefully respond to ALL the relevant questions regarding the item you want to include in the database. Please do not hesitate to contact us (David Poveda, co-coordinator WG5 -
) with any relevant questions or concerns that might help us improve the usability of the database.
