Come and join us in Manchester UK for the Internet of Toys (Digitising Early Childhood) Pre-conference held on Wednesday 6 March, 2019 at the Manchester Conference Centre. Abstracts will be double-blind peer reviewed and the pre-conference will be structured as below. This pre-conference is about the emerging world of internet-connected toys (Internet of Toys or IoToys), where toys relate one-on-one to children and also connect to other toys, other children and/or database data about children and connected toys. It is of groundbreaking relevance to educators, media and communication theorists and psychologists.
The cost of the pre-conference is $90AUD (approx £50 or €56) per delegate, including conference materials, lunch and refreshments.
Following the pre-conference is the Re-conceptualising Early Childhood Literacies: An International Conference Thursday 7 and Friday 8 March 2019. This is the DigiLitEY COST Action and H2020 Project MakEY project final conference and it will report ground-breaking findings from their years of funded research.
The call for abstracts is now open with the closing date the 15th October 2018. Full conference papers will be peer reviewed and published and plans are being made to further publish in a special issue journal or chaptered book.
