Amanda’s research aims to understand how children’s wellbeing online has been conceptualised and operationalised by social media platforms. By interrogating their logic of wellbeing as understood through their policy, controls and interface design, we can seek to understand how platforms are both shaped by culture and, in turn, shaping culture and the lives of children.

Amanda hopes to provide a new perspective on children’s wellbeing in the digital ecology through the lens of the companies controlling the popular platforms children use and giving children and parents a voice through their lived experiences.

Playing Chopper Math on the one Commodore 64 located in our primary school classroom. We were all so excited when the school opened a dedicated computer room with 12 computers and a printer!
