January 12, 2018

A new research study conducted by Danish researchers will investigate how technology and social media impact children’s and young people’s experiences of the natural world. The study is part of a five-year project “Natural Technology” which runs from 2018 to 2022.Through anthropological and cognitive studies, the researchers will document how children implement technology in their outdoor activities. The researchers will also examine how often and how long children are outside, their activities, experiences in nature, motivation, and preferences, as well as identify how technology can be used to encourage more children to get outside and enjoy nature.
