Technology's Covert Socialization of Children: High-Tech Toys.
Kritt, David W.
Journal of Thought, v36 n3 p53-61 Fall 2001
Child's play may be at risk in today's technologically-oriented society. The limited interactive capacities of high-tech toys constrain the possibilities for cognitive development, interpersonal learning, and the quality of relationships that can be formed. Current high-tech toys change the nature of play, so that the object, rather than the child's imagination, becomes the focus of play. (SM)
