Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Professor Livingstone and colleagues provide extensive evidence-based findings which enable academics, educationalists, policy makers, parents and young people to think beyond anxieties generated by new technologies and make informed decisions about maximising digital opportunities while managing risks. An impressive and essential book, central to the child digital safety debate. Professor Tanya Byron, consultant clinical psychologist and author of the Byron Review, "Safer Children in a Digital World".

Amid a public debate that has been highly polarised and often sensationalised, this book provides a balanced, theoretically sound and highly readable assessment of the research on young people’s engagement with new media. It will be an extremely valuable resource for academic researchers, policy makers, industry leaders and parents. Professor Kathryn C. Montgomery, School of Communication, AmericanUniversity, and author of "Generation Digital: Politics, Commerce, and Childhood in the Age of the Internet" (MIT Press, 2007).

..readers eager for a unique comparative assessment of issues around new digital literacies as they pertain to kids will find much in these pages. Recommended. H Lowood in Choice
