The Internet Playground

The Internet playground : children’s access, entertainment, and mis-education by Ellen Seiter talks about how the internet in combination with computers is a poor tool for children to learn. Seiter explains the aspects of the internet in an educational setting can be beneficial if properly used however that is a difficult task. Rather it does more harm and is less effective that traditional lecture. Ellen did her studies in California through two case studies at two schools through an investigation of the societal, cultural, and economic contexts.
