Interactive Options - Everyday interactions in families with small children in the era of ubiquitous media devices

This project studies everyday encounters in families with small children and especially the role of new social media devices in those interactions. Several types of data is used in the project: statistical time management data, qualitative interviews, video recordings, and dialogical group interviews based on the “stimulus material” from existing video data of real life situations.

In addition to scientific knowledge, families need concrete understanding in order to manage everyday life filled with ubiquitous media. The project produces knowledge of commonplace family encounters involving simultaneous media usage. Interactions shape family relations, and the available technological resources determine the course of action during the nodal points of encounters. The research develops down-to-earth examples of good practices, which the families can employ in their actions.

The research project is a continuation of the previous project “Media, Family Interaction and Children’s Well-being”.
