Digital media and technology have become culturally and economically powerful parts of contemporary middle-class American childhoods. Immersed in various forms of digital media as well as mobile and Web-based technologies, young people today appear to develop knowledge and skills through participation in media. In Digital Media and Technology in Afterschool Programs, Libraries, and Museums, authors Becky Herr Stephenson, Diana Rhoten, Dan Perkel and Christo Sims examine the ways in which afterschool programs, libraries, and museums use digital media to support extracurricular learning.
