Children's Views of Technology: The Role of Age, Gender, and School Setting.
Levin, Barbara B.; Barry, Sean M.
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education, v8 n4 p267-90 1997
Used children's drawings and interviews to examine the impact of age, gender, and school setting on elementary children's thinking about computers. Found that younger children drew computers much larger than themselves and set computers in home or school settings, whereas older children drew computers in proportion to themselves and placed computers in school or work settings.
