Professor Sonia Livingstone and Dr Julian Sefton-Green
The authors provide insights into how young people’s social, digital, and learning networks enable or disempower them. Based on fieldwork at a London comprehensive school, the research examines pupils’ experiences of growing up and learning in a digital world.
Following the school and home lives of 28 year nine pupils, one of the key research questions was whether the way media was used at home and school – especially given access to mobile digital technologies – allowed home and school to be connected in different ways.
The authors found that for all the talk about living in a connected world, pupils did not want teachers or parents to have access to their digital world, while the same was true of the adults.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
