Digital stress in children and adolescents is not well researched yet. Therefore, the first goal of the current project is to identify the aspects about digital technologies and media that children and adolescents perceive as stressful. The next step is to identify possible protective factors, i.e. competencies that regulate digital stress. We assume that children and adolescents who are more competent in handling digital technologies and media (i.e. have a higher media literacy) may be less likely to experience digital stress. We will conduct longitudinal studies and experiments to examine the facets of media literacy that help regulate digital stress.
