Book description

It has become popular in recent years to talk about 'identity' as an aspect of engagement with technology - in virtual environments, in games, in social media and in our increasingly digital world. But what do we mean by identity and how do our theories and assumptions about identity affect the kinds of questions we ask about its relationship to technology and learning? Constructing the Self in a Digital World takes up this question explicitly, bringing together authors working from different models of identity but all examining the role of technology in the learning and lives of children and youth.

Reviews

"...a scholarly work aimed at serious students and professionals. The book is a compilation of eight scholarly essays and studies exploring the development of self-identity and is written by experts from across the globe with section commentaries by the two authors.... Not only is there much helpful information for the serious investigator, each chapter contains an extensive bibliography for additional resources.... Recommended..."
--C. L. Tannahill, Eastern Connecticut State University, CHOICE
