Beyond the Boundaries of the Sacred Garden: Children and the Internet
Quigley, Marian; Blashki, Kathy
Information Technology in Childhood Education Annual, v2003 n1 p309-316 2003
Concern about children and the Internet is the latest in a ritual cycle of moral panics surrounding new technologies. Such panics often focus on children and are related to adult anxieties surrounding the transgression of boundaries including those between adult/child, private/public, and work/leisure. They are also founded on technological determinist accounts of media and an essentialist view of childhood. (Contains 8 notes.)
