Does the internet enhance education or erode standards? Does it empower kids or endanger them? Does it mean more freedom or more surveillance? The short answer is: all of the above. Digital technologies – including computing and mobile technologies – are among the most widely discussed subjects of our time. Yet their effects on young people and their education, and on developments in wider society, are poorly understood. This book links together the many different conversations currently taking place between IT professionals, teachers, parents, journalists, politicians and scientists.
