Summary
"The Internet Playground argues that contrary to the promises of technology boosters, teaching with computers is very difficult. Ellen Seiter points out that the Internet today resembles a mall more than it does a library. While children love to play online games, join fan communities, and use online chat and instant messaging, the Internet is also an aggressive marketer to children and, as this book argues, an educational boondoggle."--Jacket
