about

Children are growing up in a world where the internet, mobile phones and other forms of digital interaction are features of daily life. The authors have carefully observed children's experiences at home and analysed the perspectives of parents, practitioners and the children themselves. This has enabled them to provide a nuanced account of the different ways in which technology can support or inhibit learning. Drawing on evidence from their research, the authors bring a fresh approach to these debates, based on establishing relationships with children, families and educators to get insights into practices, values and attitudes.
Lydia Plowmanis Professor of Education andChristine Stephenis Research Fellow, both at the Stirling Institute of Education, University of Stirling.Joanna McPakeis Vice-Dean for Knowledge Exchange, Faculty of Education, University of Strathclyde.
