    About

    Dr. Jessica Taylor Piotrowski is a Professor in the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) where she holds the Chair Communication in the Digital Society. Dr. Piotrowski’s research asks how individual and socio-cultural differences influence children’s media selection, use, processing, and subsequent effects, with a particular focus on the contexts that support young people’s experiences with digital media. Presently, she is asking how young people (and their network of peers, teachers, (grand)parents, etc.) are learning to cope with the digital society - particularly through the lends of digital competence: a concept that represents both the digital skills and digital knowledge necessary for benefiting from today’s digital world.
