Ethical Considerations of Children's Digital Image-Making and Image-Audiancing in Early Childhood Environments
Eckhoff, Angela
Early Child Development and Care, v185 n10 p1617-1628 2015
This research examines a multi-year investigation of preschoolers' experiences participating in a media-driven exploration of informal play experiences as a means to engage children as artists, researchers, and documenters of their own worlds. In this writing, I will explore the ethical issues that arise for adult researchers engaged in participatory research employing digital technologies with young children. In particular, this writing contributes to emerging understandings of the responsibility of the adult researcher in the academic representation, presentation, and discussion of children's digital imagery and other artistic works. The role of the adult researcher is highlighted through the exploration of the ethical considerations surrounding aims to represent children's work in ways that are ethical, respectful, and adhere to the child's artistic, creative, and aesthetic intent.
