The Young and the Digital : What the Migration to Social Network Sites, Games, and Anytime, Anywhere Media Means for Our Future
InThe Young and the Digital,S. CraigWatkins skillfully draws from more than 500 surveys and 350 in-depth interviews with young people, parents, and educators to understand how a digital lifestyle is affecting the ways youth learn, play, bond, and communicate. Timely and deeply relevant, the book covers the influence of MySpace and Facebook, the growing appetite for ldquo;anytime, anywhererdquo; media and ldquo;fast entertainment,rdquo; how online ldquo;digital gatesrdquo; reinforce race and class divisions, and how technology is transforming Americarsquo;s classrooms. Watkins also debunks popular myths surrounding cyberpredators, Internet addiction, and social isolation. The result is a fascinating portrait, both celebratory and wary, about the coming of age of the first fully wired generation.
