Teaching popular culture : beyond radical pedagogy by David Buckingham( )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 1,949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The civic web : young people, the Internet and civic participation by Shakuntala Banaji( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been widespread concern in contemporary Western societies about declining engagement in civic life; people are less inclined to vote, to join political parties, to campaign for social causes, or to trust political processes. Young people in particular are frequently described as alienated or apathetic. Some have looked optimistically to new media -- and particularly the Internet -- as a means of revitalizing civic life and democracy. Governments, political parties, charities, NGOs, activists, religious and ethnic groups, and grassroots organizations have created a range of youth-oriented websites that encourage widely divergent forms of civic engagement and use varying degrees of interactivity. But are young people really apathetic and lacking in motivation? Does the Internet have the power to re-engage those disenchanted with politics and civic life? Based on a major research project funded by the European Commission, this book attempts to understand the role of the Internet in promoting young people's participation. Examples are drawn from Hungary, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom -- countries offering contrasting political systems and cultural contexts. The book also addresses broader questions about the meaning of civic engagement, the nature of new forms of participation, and their implications for the future of civic life
Toys, games, and media by Jeffrey H Goldstein( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a glance at where toys have come from and where they are likely to go in the years ahead. The focus is on the interplay between traditional toys and play, and toys and play that are mediated by, or combined with, digital technology. As well as covering the technical aspects of computer-mediated play activities, the authors consider how technologically enhanced toys are currently used in traditional play and how they are woven into children's lives. The authors contrast their findings about technologically enhanced toys with knowledge of traditional toys and play. They link their studies of toys to goals in education and to entertainment and information transfer." "This book will appeal to students, researchers, teachers, child-care workers, and more broadly, the entertainment "industry." This volume may be appropriate for courses that deal with the specialized subject of toys and games. However, many courses in Media Studies, Education and Teacher Training, and Child Development will also inevitable have a component to cover this topic."--Jacket

After the death of childhood : growing up in the age of electronic media by David Buckingham( Book )

39 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What will be the fate of childhood in the twenty-first century? Will children increasingly be living 'media childhoods', dominated by the electronic screen? Will their growing access to adult media help to abolish the distinctions between childhood and adulthood? Or will the advent of new media technologies widen the gaps between the generations still further? In this book, David Buckingham provides a lucid and accessible overview of recent changes both in childhood and in the media environment. He refutes simplistic moral panics about the negative influence of the media, and the exagger
The material child : growing up in consumer culture by David Buckingham( Book )

30 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Children today are growing up in an increasingly commercialized world. But should we see them as victims of manipulative marketing, or as competent participants in consumer culture? The Material Child provides a comprehensive critical overview of debates about children's changing engagement with the commercial market. It moves from broad overviews of the theory and history of children's consumption to insightful case studies of key areas such as obesity, sexualisation, children's broadcasting and education. In the process, it challenges much of the received wisdom about the effects of advertising and marketing, arguing for a more balanced account that locates children's consumption within a broader analysis of social relationships, for example within the family and the peer group. While refuting the popular view of children as incompetent and vulnerable consumers that is adopted by many campaigners, it also rejects the easy celebration of consumption as an expression of children's power and autonomy. Written by one of the leading international scholars in the field, The Material Child will be of interest to students, researchers and policy-makers, as well as parents, teachers and others who work directly with children."--Publisher's website

Youth, identity, and digital media by David Buckingham( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As young people today grow up in a world saturated with digital media, how does it affect their sense of self and others? As they define and redefine their identities through engagements with technology, what are the implications for their experiences as learners, citizens, consumers, and family and community members? This volume addresses the consequences of digital media use for young people's individual and social identities." "The contributors explore how young people use digital media to share ideas and creativity and to participate in networks that are small and large, local and global, intimate and anonymous. They look at the emergence of new genres and forms, from SMS and instant messaging to home pages, blogs, and social networking sites. They discuss such topics as "girl power" online, the generational digital divide, young people and mobile communication, and the appeal of the "digital publics" of MySpace, considering whether these media offer young people genuinely new forms of engagement, interaction, and communication."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Beyond technology : children's learning in the age of digital culture by David Buckingham( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Technology: Children's Learning in the Age of Digital Culture offers an analysis of learning, young people and digital media. Disputing both utopian fantasies about the transformation of education and exaggerated fears about the corruption of childhood innocence, it offers a level-headed analysis of the impact of these new media on learning, drawing on a wide range of critical research. Buckingham argues that there is now a growing divide between the media-rich world of children's lives outside school and their experiences of technology in the classroom. Bridging this divide, he suggests, will require more than superficial attempts to import technology into schools, or to combine education with digital entertainment. While debunking such fantasies of technological change, Buckingham also provides a constructive alternative, arguing that young people need to be equipped with a new form of digital literacy that is both critical and creative."--Jacket

Home truths? : video production and domestic life by David Buckingham( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past decade, the video camera has become a commonplace household technology. With falling prices on compact and easy-to-use cameras, as well as mobile phones and digital still cameras with video recording capabilities, access to moving image production technology is becoming virtually universal. Home Truths? represents one of the few academic research studies exploring this everyday, popular use of video production technology, looking particularly at how families use and engage with the technology and how it fits into the routines of everyday life. The authors draw on interviews, observations, and the participants' videos themselves, seeking to paint a comprehensive picture of the role of video making in their everyday lives. While readers gain a sense of the individual characters involved in the project and the complexities and diversities of their lives, the analysis also raises a range of broader issues about the nature of learning and creativity, subjectivity and representation, and the "domestication" of technology--issues that are of interest to many in the fields of sociology and media/cultural studies"--Publisher's description
