Growing Up With Technology synopsis
Growth with technology explores the role of technology in the daily lives of three- and four-year-olds and presents the implications for children's continuous learning and development.
Children grow in a world where the Internet, mobile phones and other forms of digital interaction are everyday features.
The authors carefully monitored the experiences of children at home and analyzed the views of parents, practitioners and children themselves. This has enabled them to provide an accurate account of the different ways in which technology can support or prevent learning. Based on evidence from their research, the authors bring a new approach to these discussions, based on relationships with children, families and teachers to obtain information about practices, values and attitudes.
A number of key questions, including:
Home and Preschool?
What kind of learning takes place in these meetings?
How can parents and practitioners support this learning?
Are some children disadvantaged when it comes to learning using technology?
It will be of great importance to university students and graduate students on a range of courses including childhood studies, and those who have a particular interest in the use of technology in education.
Parents, practitioners and researchers will also find this wonderful and useful reading.
