Editorial Reviews

“From blogs to video games, from living rooms to internet cafés, from Africa to Canada, Growing Up Online has it all. Transcending the hype and moral panic that typically pervade adult discourses about youth and media, the essays in this collection deconstruct the complexities of young people’s relationship with a range of digital technologies.”--Sharon R. Mazzarella, Professor of Communication Studies at Clemson University and editor of Girl Wide Web"Growing Up Online provides us with a wealth of vivid images of the changing position of girls and young women as both consumers and producers in the emerging digital world. It offers a plethora of issues for further research and debate about the new possibilities-and some of the limitations-that characterize the new online cultures of information, play and social interaction." - David Buckingham, Professor of Education, Institute of Education, University of London
