On Day 1 we will explore some of the challenges and insights involved in using new technologies that take the study of children’s development out of the lab and into diverse environments. Alejandro Moreno will share his exciting work on bringing together digital technology and physical play spaces to create digital playgrounds and Elian Fink will present her cutting edge work on using automated collection and analysis of the linguistic environment in children’s homes.

Following the talks there will be a hands-on session for participants to explore the technologies used. We hope there will be lots of networking and useful discussion regarding ethics, practicalities, new directions, collaborations and more!

13:00 – 15:00 Two talks by Dr Elian Fink (University of Cambridge) and Dr Alejandro Moreno (University of Twente), both followed by short Q&A sessions

Dr Elian Fink (University of Cambridge): Harnessing new technology to better understand the family language environment

Dr Alejandro Moreno (University of Twente): Shaping Social Play Behavior in Interactive Playgrounds

15:00 – 16:00 Coffee and networking opportunities, along with a hands-on session to showcase the technologies used in Dr Jenny Gibson’s and Dr Vicky Leong’s research.
