The Global Campus of Human Rights is pleased to announce the MOOC on Children’s Rights and Technology in the Digital Age.

This MOOC will take a deep dive into just how often children are exposed to these futuristic, and sometimes problematic, technological developments and investigate what that means for a vulnerable group that may not fully understand the implications – be they positive or negative – or meaning of consent.

By way of a MOOC, we aim to provide a coherent overview of the current discussions, regulations, and known implications of children’s relationships to technology in the digital age.

We also aim to close the gap in knowledge and a lack of accessibility of existing knowledge to a wider audience.

Through a human rights approach, this project will play a role in promoting a more ethical, human-centric, and accessible tech-infused future, considering the coming generations may not have a say in what they have inherited. It is critical that we call attention to this issue now, while we still have the ability to moderate technological implementation as it continually seeps into our everyday lives.

We want to challenge the diverse audience of our MOOC to be critical consumers and informed advocates for children’s rights in the digital age.
