Digital media are everywhere and are therefore a major part of our lives and the lives of our children. The new specialisation in Digital Media in Human Development focuses on the opportunities and challenges of digital media in child rearing and education.

Digital Media in Human Development is one of the nine specialisations of the master’s programme in Education and Child Studies that you can choose at Leiden University.

The master’s specialisation Digital Media in Human Development distinguishes itself from other programmes in the field of digital media by paying explicit attention to the role of digital media in child rearing, education, the treatment of problems and how digital media influence child development.

Why choose this specialisation?

Child rearing and instruction are changing under the influence of digital media, that is characterized by rapid developments in applications for computers, mobile telephony, handhelds, virtual reality, internet, MOOCs, serious gaming and other digital devices and techniques.

Given the new opportunities offered by digital media, but also the inherent dangers and risks, it is essential to equip students who will be taking up practical, policy oriented and scientific positions in this field with evidence based knowledge.

The programme of Digital Media in Human Development is interdisciplinary. It combines pedagogical, instructional and neurobiological knowledge and insights. It covers such subjects as:

  • learning to read with digital media
  • the role of parents in handling digital media
  • the scope for digital media to strengthen family interventions and treatment practices for problem situations
  • the influence of growing up in a digital environment on cognitive, emotional, motor and physical development together with the role played in this by parents and teachers.

These themes will be addressed in depth from a scientific perspective, where the key principle will be that the new ways in which information and experience are offered have to be consistent with the human information processing system.
