The use digital of technologies and children's language and literacy development

In this guest lecture, Professor Messer will present recent findings from language-focused investigations and talk about ongoing research projects concerned with children’s literacy.

One set of projects concerns collaboration of pre-school children, the use of digital technologies for encouraging literacy. Another set considers interventions and investigations related to communication, reading and literacy. A third area concerns pupils’ reports about the effects of carrying out student-led research (11-12 years).

David Messer is Professor Emeritus at the Open University and a Visiting Honorary Professor at City University of London.

The event is a joint initiative by the Norwegian Reading Centre, Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research in Education and FILIORUM.
