Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child

Queensland University of Technology, Other Australian Universities

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child is the world’s first research centre dedicated to creating positive digital childhoods for children. Our program of research helps answer key questions about how children are growing, learning and connecting with digital technology that’s rapidly evolving and changing. Our research innovates and intersects across fields of health, education and technology to offer a holistic view of young children and their digital experiences. The heart of our research program is our Australian Children of the Digital Age (ACODA) Longitudinal Study – a seven-year study of 3000 Australian families, focussing on children from birth to eight years of age. The Centre is a collective of national and international partners across education, government, business and the community, all working together to achieve the Centre’s vision.
