    This study dealt with the interaction between two important trends in future Western societies, i.e. the greying of society and the technology-induced transformation of everyday life. It aimed at formulating a framework of policy recommendations with regard to the elderly and ICT in 2030. To meet this objective a three-phased methodology was developed, relying on methods of participatory technology assessment and technology foresighting. In the first phase of the project, a literature study, semi-structured expert discussions and focus groups with (future) (...)

    Television Viewing and Obesity Among Pre-School Children: The Role of Parents.Katrien Van Cleemput & Heidi Vandebosch - 2007 - Communications 32 (4):417-446.
    Western societies are confronted with a growing number of overweight and obese children. Past studies have pointed to excessive television viewing as one of the causes of this phenomenon. The aim of the current study was to examine the influence of parental mediation and modeling on TV use and obesity among pre-school children. A survey conducted among 608 parents of two-and-a-half to six year olds shows that obese children watch significantly more television, show more affinity towards television and more often (...)

    Who Bullies Whom Online: A Social Network Analysis of Cyberbullying in a School Context.Steven Eggermont, Heidi Vandebosch & Denis Wegge - 2014 - Communications 39 (4):415-433.
    Young adolescents’ online bullying behavior has raised a significant amount of academic attention. Nevertheless, little is known about the social context in which such negative actions occur. The present paper addresses this issue and examines how the patterns of traditional bullying and cyberbullying are related, and how electronic forms of bullying can be linked to the social context at school. To address these questions, social network analysis was applied to examine the networks of social interactions and bullying among an entire (...)

    Endorsing Children’s Appetite for Healthy Foods: Celebrity Versus Non-Celebrity Spokes-Characters.Heidi Vandebosch & Tim Smits - 2012 - Communications 37 (4):371-391.
    This paper tests the comparative effectiveness of spokes-characters, both ‘celebrity’ and ‘non-celebrity’, in promoting healthy versus non-healthy foods. An experimental study among 6- to 7-year-old children in Belgium demonstrates that adding a spokes-character to a food product increases the appetite, the wished-for frequency of consumption and the expected number of purchase requests for that product. This finding holds true for healthy foods as well as for unhealthy foods. The effect of the celebrity spokes-character exceeds that of a similar gnome. Nevertheless, (...)

    News for Adolescents: Mission Impossible? An Evaluation of Flemish Television News Aimed at Teenagers.Hilde Van den Bulck, Alexander Dhoest & Heidi Vandebosch - 2009 - Communications 34 (2):125-148.
    Media companies as well as governments launch initiatives to reverse the decline in news consumption by adolescents. Since 2007, the Flemish government has been funding newscasts for adolescents on two commercial channels, Zoom on VTM and Jam on VT4. In 2008, these programs were evaluated using in-depth interviews with producers, content analysis of 30 episodes of each program, an analysis of the ratings for the first season, and an online survey among 663 adolescents aged 10 to 18. Results indicate that (...)
