Michelle Cook

Michelle Cook’s PhD (Integrated) navigates the literature surrounding children’s citizenship and rights in relation to the data they create when connecting with digital technologies. Michelle hopes to improve and acknowledge children’s agency, vulnerability and voice as participatory citizens in an increasingly datafied and digitally pervasive society.

The first computer my parents bought us in the early 80s was Dick Smith’s VZ200. We loved Pong and Space Invaders.

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child acknowledges the First Australian owners of the lands on where we gather and pay our respects to the Elders, lores, customs and creation spirits of this country.

The Centre recognises that the examples we set in diversity and inclusion will support young children to respect and celebrate differences in all people. We embed diversity, inclusivity and equality into all aspects of the Centre’s activities and welcome all people regardless of race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and national origin.
