Are Computers Good for Children?
On a couple of occasions last year, I was asked by students to point them towards information which documented the potential harmful effects that using computers could have on children. So perhaps some of you will be interested in a recent piece of US / Austalian research; the report is entitled Are Computers Good for Children? The Effects of Home Computers on Educational Outcomes, and takes a detailed look at this topic.
