Meet the Author

Dr. Alecea Standlee is currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Concord University located in Athens, WV. In 2012, she received a PhD from Syracuse University in Sociology. Her research focuses on the role that contemporary communication technologies play in the lives of college students. Her current project specifically focuses on how college students use social media, texting and related media as means to establish and maintain interpersonal relationships with peers. This research utilizes qualitative and online ethnographic methods for data collection. More information about this method is available in Alecea's journal article "Ethnographic Approaches to the Internet and Computer-Mediated Communication" published by the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography. This interest in the impact of communication technologies in the lives of college students led to the development of the upper division seminar course that was offered in the fall of 2012. The course focuses on providing college students with a way to articulate their own social and cultural identities within techno-social culture.

    The ebook entitled Plug-in and Live: Voices from the Digital Na

    The ebook entitled Plug-in and Live: Voices from the Digital Natives edited by Dr. Alecea Standlee, is an interesting compilation of essays written by college students in West Virginia. Seven students worked to discover and research our technology-rich culture in different forms. Topics such as Internet and console gaming, interactions on social media sites, and technology’s relevance in society are all brought to the readers’ attention.  Perhaps one of the best aspects of this book is the fact that all authors are termed digital natives, as they’ve never known a time where technology and computers were not available to them.  As a digital native and a future teacher myself, it was interesting to read about the viewpoints and research tactics of authors of my generation.  While gaming has never had a huge impact in my life, finding out about gender stereotypes associated with gamers can certainly play a role in the classroom environment. Aside from gaming, the amount that students spend on social media has become increasingly prevalent. One author even conducted research about Facebook while using Facebook to get answers to his questions.  Although this collection of essays gives the reader insight into the concerns of digital natives, the drawback is the editing and proofing. Readers will be able to readily identify the authors as being from college because the wording and research are not at a professional level. I would recommend this ebook for students to read to gain some perspective on true technology concerns of the present time.
