Summary "Education and New Technologies focuses on aspects of education where the use of new technologies has been particularly controversial, i.e. where possible educational benefits are accompanied by concerns about a potential negative impact on learners' experiences and development. This book highlights key issues and their implications for learners, considering questions such as: When should a child's digital diet begin? Does the use of new technology hinder or enhance literacy development? What's the impact on learners who are 'connected' most of the time? Do new technologies give children new abilities or undermine their skills and identities? Are learners safe in online educational spaces?"-- Provided by publisher.
