High-tech tots : childhood in a digital world by Ilene R Berson( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the interface between young children and information and communication technology (ICT) from a global perspective. There are three primary areas of emphasis: (a) ICT as a teaching and learning tool across cultures and countries to promote the social and cognitive development of young children; (b) research on developmentally appropriate education on cybersafety and cybercitizenship; and (c) studies on the influence of digital technologies on young children, including exposure to inappropriate content and participation in online social networks."--Page 4 of cover

Technology in retrospect : social studies in the information age, 1984-2009 by Richard A Diem( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given both the changing nature of technology, as well as its classroom applications, over the past quarter century this work captured the historical trends of both use and application of information technology in the social studies during this era. This was done by providing a retrospective view, from 1984-2009, of where we have been, where we are, and a view of new tools, strategies and studies that are emerging that can enhance our understanding of the effects that technology has and will have on the social studies
Participatory methodologies to elevate children's voice and agency( )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of the Research in Global Child Advocacy Series explores participatory methodologies and tools that involve children in research. Perspectives on the role of children have transitioned from viewing children as objects of research, to children as subjects of research, to acknowledgement of children as competent contributors and agents throughout the inquiry process. Researchers continue to explore approaches that honor the capacity of children, drawing on diverse methodologies to elevate children's voices and actively engage them in the production of knowledge. Nonetheless, despite these developments, questions over the extent to which children can be free of adult filters and influence merits sustained scholarly attention. The book includes chapters that critically examine methodological approaches that empower children in the research process. Contributions include empirical or practitioner pieces that operate from an empowerment paradigm and demonstrate the agenic capacity of children to contribute their perspectives and voices to our understanding of childhood and children's lives. The text also features conceptual pieces that challenge existing theoretical frameworks, critique research paradigms, and analyze dilemmas or tensions related to ethics, policy and power relations in the research process." -- Provided by publisher

The electronic republic? : the impact of technology on education for citizenship( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1991, Lawrence Grossman wrote that "a new political system is taking shape in the United States. As we approach the twenty-first century, America is turning into an electronic republic, a democratic system that is vastly increasing the people's day-to-day influence on decisions of state." Grossman's forecast implied a sea change in the way citizens would interact with, and participate in, their representative government; a revamping of the way Americans would 'do' citizenship. Harnessing the power of technology to promote the ideal of democracy that first pulsed through our nation over 230 years ago may be a feasible achievement in a technocratic age, but whether technology can help achieve a revolution as seismic as the political one that our founding fathers initiated may be a practical impossibility. Fusing the power of technology and democratic ideals opens opportunities for greater access to information and offers a medium for people to be heard and express their voice with dissemination to the masses through digital tools, such as blogs, podcasts, and wikis. Indeed, the emergence of the Internet as a nearly ubiquitous element of American society has brought about new opportunities to enhance citizen engagement in democratic politics and to increase the level of civic engagement among American citizens. Despite such rhetoric, however, research has indicated that Grossman's "electronic republic" has, for the most part, failed to come to fruition."--Book cover
