Speaker: Jessica Piotrowski -- Associate Professor, Amsterdam School of Communication Research, University of Amsterdam

Title: Plugged In: How Media Attract and Affect Youth

Abstract: Now, as never before, young people are surrounded by media—thanks to the sophistication and portability of the technology that puts it literally in the palms of their hands. Drawing on data and empirical research that cross many fields and continents, in this presentation, Dr. Piotrowski will discuss the role of media in the lives of children from birth through adolescence, addressing the complex issues of how media affect the young and what adults can do to encourage responsible use in an age of selfies, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
