Title: Communicating and Seeking Health Information in the Age of Digital Media
Over the past few decades, the development of Internet has shaped the health communication landscape in many ways. It is clear to see the digital media has become an important source for communicating and seeking health information for various groups. This talk will cover two of my recent studies that explored both the theoretical understanding and practical implementation of health communication in the age of digital media. The first study involved a content analysis to investigate the coverage of HPV-related information on one of the most popular Chinese social media, Zhihu. Results suggested that thematic framing was more often used by the Zhihu articles to disseminate HPV-related issues, and a significant relationship between framing strategy and information coverage was found. The second study applied an online survey to examine the key determinants that predispose individuals’ online information seeking behavior and prevention intent during the COVID-19 outbreak. Results indicated that affective responses, informational subjective norms, and information insufficiency were positively related to online information seeking about COVID-19. These two studies have not only extended the literature of health information coverage in digital media, but also implied their potential impacts on individual’s psychological and behavioral attributes within different health contexts.

Title: Research on Responsible Artificial Intelligence Strategies for the Government Governance
With the arrival of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial revolution, more and more countries and governments are actively introducing and vigorously developing artificial intelligence technology to enhance their own strength. However, the wide application of new technology not only brings opportunities, but also brings new problems, which poses certain challenges to government governance. Therefore, it is urgent to rationally examine the subject, object and content of responsibility under the guidance of the principle of "shared responsibility", discuss how to develop responsible AI in government governance, and put forward corresponding strategies.

Title: Integrating information and communication technology into Early Years Education
Today's children live in a digital and media-saturated world overflowing with information and communication technology (ICT) tools to the extent that they are now referred to as "digital natives." There is mounting evidence that information and communication technology has the potential to support children's development and early learning when used effectively, appropriately, and intentionally. This keynote speech focuses on the importance of providing children with multiple learning opportunities through information and communication technology. The presentation includes the effective use of ICT in classrooms. Moreover, it suggests several methods to help teachers develop technological knowledge and skills so that they could integrate these skills into their teaching practices. Finally, it tackles different cultural perspectives on ICT integration into early years education.
