CALL FOR PAPERS: Techno-Addiction Among the Young, Adolescents and Children


The consumption and presence of the young and adolescents in social networks, and in online games along with children, as well as the constant use of the Smartphone and Tablet, has grown vertiginously, thanks to, among other aspects, the lowering of the price by the companies that supply a connection, and the ability to connect to a WiFi network for free in education and entertainment centers.

These data back the systematic change in behavior of the children, the young, and adolescents related to their relationship with technology. As a result, it is not trivial to speak about addiction to technologies, but about Techno-addictions.

In 1998, Young had already proposed the first study on Internet addiction, and today, more than two decades later, and after the advance of technology and situations experienced in the last few months in which the entire population suffered from confinement at home, it is necessary to clarify the type of panorama the present society finds itself in. Thus, work is needed to elucidate the relationship with the Internet in general, and with elements such as social networks or Smartphone in particular, and to try to determine the addictive relationship of the children, adolescents and young, if present.

This monograph aims to explore questions like:   

  • Are teens and young adults aware of their addiction technological?
  • Are families ready to face a digital addiction in their sons and daughters?
  • Have schools developed or are preparing plans for performance?
  • Should we talk about techno-addiction or problematic use of devices?
  • Are the associations linked to this topic carrying out or designing 
    preventive or direct action programs?
