Kids Online: What’s Next in Social Learning and Technology Will Be… Well, Unexpected!
Kids online: A new research agenda for understanding social networking forums is the first comprehensive view undertaken to document pressing questions about children’s involvement online. Among the key issues the analysis raises and sheds light on are:
- Which children are using social networking forums and what are they doing there?
- What do we know about how online experiences influence children’s social, cognitive, and creative development?
- What kind of research do we need to do in order to better understand who is going online and what kinds of things they are doing?
- What should designers, educators, and parents be aware of as they navigate these new environments and try to help children make the most of them?
