Eastern Arc Seminar: Technology Use and Adolescent Wellbeing: Cause, effect, mediator, what’s the tea?

15 November 2019

Cara Booker from the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex, will be leading a staff-student seminar at the University of Kent on 21 November 4pm-5:30pm.

She will discuss the evolution of the debate regarding the association between technology use, focusing on social media use and gaming, and subjective wellbeing among adolescents.

She will include past and current research and their role in shaping these discussions. The objective of this body of research is to further understand the direction of association and the potential mechanisms of the relationship between technology use and subjective well-being.

Using data from two UK studies, Understanding Society: The UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS) and the Millennium Cohort Study, she will show how associations may differ by gender and type of technology.

All are welcome, but contact Heejung Chung by 19 Nov if you want to attend.
