This new study looks at what children are doing with media in the fastest growing sector of the childcare industry, after-school care. Drawing on groundbreaking ethnographic research, Karen Orr Vered shows how children's media play in peer-group, recreational settings is collaborative, creative, and integrated with more traditional forms of play. Arguing that the intermediary space of after-school care has links to both home life and classroom activities, Vered shows how the informal learning experienced in play contributes to children's acquisition of media literacy. Increasingly used outside the home and beyond the classroom, electronic games, computers, television and media production activities are fundamental to children's culture. Children and Media Outside the Home provides a fresh look at children, media, play and learning.
