Project: I am looking at the use of the internet of Irish children from 9-16 year old in the last few years. I hope that the GUI dataset will give us more evidence on the use of the internet at school and at home. On the other hand, I'd like to identify the patterns of internet use of Irish children by comparing the two datasets (9 year old and 13 year old).

Project: As a final year student in the MSc in Cyberpsychology in IADT my thesis is flcusing on the impact of technology, particularly gaming, on children's cognitive processes and problem solving abilities in the 8-12 year old age group. I am interested in examining the data that GUI has collected previously in regards to technology usage and its correlation with maths assessment scores.
