Childhood is increasingly saturated by technology: from television to the Internet, video games to 'video nasties', camcorders to personal computers. Children, Technology and Culture looks at the interplay of children and technology which poses critical questions for how we understand the nature of childhood in late modern society. This collection brings together researchers from a range of disciplines to address the following four aspects of this relationship between children and technology: *children's access to technologies and the implications for social relationships *the structural contexts of children's engagement with technologies with a focus on gender and the family *the situatedness of children's interactions with technological objects *the constitution of children and childhood through the mediations of technology _ This book represents a substantial contribution to contemporary social scientific thinking both about the nature of children and childhood, the social impacts of technologies and the various relationships between the two.

That children learn to speak so skillfully at a young age has long fascinated adults.Most children virtually master their native tongue even before learning to tie their shoelaces. Theability to acquire language has historically been regarded as a "gift" -- a view given scientificfoundation only in the present century by Noam Chomsky's theory of "universal grammar," which positsan innate knowledge of the principles that structure all languages. In thisdelightful, accessible book, psycholinguist Bénédicte de Boysson-Bardies presents a broad picture oflanguage development, from fetal development to the toddler years, and examines a wide range ofpuzzling questions: How do newborns recognize elements of speech? How do they distinguish them fromnonspeech sounds? How do they organize and analyze them? How do they ultimately come to understandand reproduce these sounds? Finally, how does the ability to communicate through language emerge inchildren? Boysson-Bardies also addresses questions of particular interest to parents, such aswhether one should speak to children in a special way to facilitate language learning and whetherthere is cause to worry when a twenty-month-old child does not yet speak. Although the authorprovides a clear summary of the current state of language acquisition theory, the special appeal ofthe book lies in her research and "dialogue" with her many young subjects.
