Risks, threats and opportunities reloaded"

International Off-year Congress ECREA-CYM-2019,

19th to the 20th of September 2019,

Salamanca, Spain



Children and adolescents increasingly turn to mobile media devices and SmartScreen’s, the Smartphone in particular - at home, at school or on the move-, to stay connected with family and friends, for schooling activities and to access a variety of digital media contents and services including social media, music, videos, and games. The everytime-and-everywhere-access to mobile media has changed children’s and adolescents’ everyday life with potential implications on their -from a broad perspective- socialization, consumer patterns, schooling orientated behaviour among others. This conference wants to address these issues both from a theoretical and methodological perspective. We welcome Case Studies and research in the conference topics. -Click here for "one click all info" .pdf-
