Child Trends
Children and youth are growing up in an increasingly technology-saturated world. Digital devices, the Internet, and interactive media have become ubiquitous. As a result, young people are not only becoming expert users of technological devices, but technology and technologically-based learning environments are extending student learning beyond the conventional classroom. This brief draws on results from non-experimental research and the insights of practitioners to outline the benefits, challenges, and strategies associated with incorporating technology into out-of-school time programs. A list of additional resources for programs interested in incorporating technology into their activities; and an "In the Spotlight" feature focusing on the Global Kids program of New York, New York are also included. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
