This talk is part of the Developmental Psychology Brown Bag Series.
Over 75 percent of all adolescents now own a mobile phone. Mobile technologies are changing the way that adolescents are interacting with each other, their parents, and the world; on average, adolescents send 50 text messages per day, with 1 in 3 adolescents sending over 100. Odgers' team has been using mobile technologies to study adolescents' daily experiences and gain insights into their momentary responses to daily stressors and involvement in health risk behaviors. This talk will highlight new findings from the miLife Study, which followed young adolescents through their daily lives using mobile phones. The challenges and opportunities presented by the use of mobile technologies in the study of adolescent development will be reviewed, alongside a discussion of what it may mean to be "born digital."
Candice L. Odgers is an associate director of the Center and associate professor of public policy and psychology and neuroscience.
