Canadian Scholarship In Childhood And Youth: 21st Century Learning And Digital Technologies Among Children And Young People

| |
Digital technologies are increasingly becoming a fundamental part of the lives of children and adolescents in Canada. Yet, how these technologies are leveraged and experienced among children and their families remain an area to be explored. We invite papers with new empirically-based research using qualitative and/or quantitative methods that highlight the ways in which digital technologies are shaping childhood and youth and family life. In particular, we invite papers that can advance our understandings of how Canadian youth and their families are interacting with digital technologies (e.g. child agency, parental use and monitoring) as a learning tool and for leisure. We invite authors and researchers to submit articles that can also extend research into new research methodologies (e.g. time diaries on cellphones) that can contribute to a deeper understanding of the way children and families experience technology in 21st century classrooms and households. Participants should leave this session with a greater understanding of the interplay between childhood, family life and new emerging technologies.

Cannabis Legalization: Exploring the Impacts of an Unprecedented Drug Policy Change

| |
Non-medical cannabis was federally legalized in Canada on October 17, 2018. The Federal government states that it is taking a public health-centred approach to regulating non-medical cannabis, one which aims to reduce youth consumption of cannabis, limit advertising, regulate product quality, establish production, distribution, and sale safety requirements, and displace the illegal cannabis market. This session features contributions that consider how cannabis legalization is positioned to impact diverse populations. For example, what kinds of differential impacts of this federal policy change should we expect to see across gender, ethnicity, class and other axes of inequality? How are provincial and municipal-level cannabis regulations shaping such impacts? And what new issues require consideration for youth and medical marijuana users under this new legal regulatory framework?

Challenges to Equal Opportunity: Higher Education I

| |
More students are attending Canadian colleges and universities than ever before. Dramatic increases in enrollments over the past two decades has brought issues of equal opportunity within post-secondary education to the fore. This session will focus on empirical research from both college and university settings. Presenters and audience members should come away with a clearer understanding of real patterns of higher education outcomes in Canada, and to ponder institutional policies and practices that can truly alter those patterns.
