Reinvention of childhood in a networked world

Lloyd, Margaret M. (2001) Reinvention of childhood in a networked world. In McDougall, Anne, Murnane, John S., & Chambers, Dianne (Eds.) 7th World Conference on Computers in Education, 29 July - 3 August 2001, Copenhagen, Denmark.


This paper will consider the reinvention of childhood wrought by children's association with new information technologies, and the contemporary differences in approach to these technologies but focus mainly on the new stories, images and allegories being told of childhood. It will address the contemporary media reinvention of childhood through the analysis of two contemporary examples - one utopian, the other apocalyptic. Fact is fictionalised as mythic and connotative agents are used to control what and how the association of children and new information and communications technologies is seen.
