Summary
The mall is so old school; these days kids are hanging out on YouTube, and depending on whom you ask, they are either forging the digital frontier or frittering away their childhoods in anti-intellectual solipsism. This book cuts through the hype, going behind the scenes to understand kids' everyday engagement with new media. Debunking the stereotype of the self-taught computer whiz, the author, a new media scholar and filmmaker describes the collaborative social networks kids use to negotiate identity and develop digital literacy on the 'Tube. Her long-term ethnographic studies also cover peer-based and family-driven video-making dynamics, girl geeks, civic engagement, and representational ethics. This book makes key contributions to new media studies, communication, science and technology studies, digital anthropology, and informal education. -- Provided by publisher.
