Childhoods in a Digital World

Technological development has become a key influence on childhood and is likely to continue. This will create a wealth of opportunities for children and young people but will also present new threats.

To coincide with the release of their Childhoods in a Digital World white paper, Barnardo’s came to DBD to create an influential animation to be shown at both the Labour & Conservative 2017 party conferences to call on government and politicians to catch up with technology and shape plans to protect children and young people, both now and in the future.

Have you stopped to think how quick technology is moving?

The animation starts by posing the question ‘Have you stopped to think how quick technology is moving?’ before throwing the view in to a technological journey through time.

A 74 year digital journey

The protagonist, a young teenage boy, takes us on 74 year digital journey – ultimately showing how the rate of technological advancement impacts both positively and negatively upon him.
