Youth digital citizenship in three European countries: profiles of online civic (non)participation
Keywords:children and youth, digital citizenship, civic participation, media and digital literacy
This paper aims to contribute to the study of youth’s digital citizenship through the development of a typology of (non) civic online participation which includes issues related to the search of informational content, participation in news coverage, and perceptions on media and digital literacy. From a multivariate statistical analysis of the “EU Kids Online” survey (2017-2019) in three European countries, we identified three profiles which attributes allow us to discuss informal practices and differences in the level and kind of participation, considering individual characteristics and the country of residence.
