The project analyzes problem gambling and social media usage from a social psychological perspective. The project collected the YouGamble 2017 Survey in March-April 2017. Respondents were Finnish young people aged 15 to 25 (N=1200). Additional YouGamble Social Media survey (N=223) was collected in April-June 2017 from Finnish social media sites. The project also collected data from the US (N=1212) and South Korea (N=1190) in the beginning of 2018, and from Spain (N=1212) in January 2019. The surveys measured problem gambling, addictive behavior, social media usage, subjective well-being and social relationships. The survey also included social psychological survey experiment using a vignette design. The aim of the project is to analyze the effect of online group processes and content characteristics on young people’s reactions to gambling-related messages. The hypotheses were pre-registered to Open Science Framework in March 2017.

Este projeto de pesquisa pretende investigar contradições e perspectivas emergentes em propostas e experiências de inclusão, interculturalidade e inovação pedagógica desenvolvidas no processo de formação de educadores em universidades nacionais e internacionais, por meio de variadas metodologias e de subprojetos de pesquisa que serão desenvolvidos colaborativamente pelas universidades participantes, sendo respeitadas as demandas regionais de cada Instituição de Ensino Superior (IES). Pretendemos, além disso, construir uma rede de colaboração por meio da criação do Observatório Internacional sobre a temática.
