"In this comprehensive, practical, and unsettling look at computers in children's lives, Jane M. Healy, Ph. D., questions whether computers are really helping or harming children's development.

"Based on years of research into learning and hundreds of hours of interviews and observations with school administrators, teachers, parents, and students, Failure to Connect is a timely and eye-opening examination of the central questions we must confront as technology increasingly influences the way we educate our children."--Jacket
