The kidsmediacentre at Centennial College conducts research on children and youth’s digital usage patterns and media habits. Students in a variety of media programs at the School of Communications, Media and Design support these research initiatives, and in the process, acquire professional development and practical, job ready skills. #Instafame has been funded as a fellowship grant and the incredible research team on this project has spent a year in the field: 

#probing trends, attitudes and young people’s social media usage patterns
#identifying influences driving fame building and selfie curation 
#teasing out the larger impact of social media and technology culture on #teen identity
#examining youth cultures’ media health

We’d like to thank the Applied Research and Innovation Centre (ARIC) at Centennial College for supporting this Fellowship project.

Welcome to the discussion.
