Information and Communication Technologies in Everyday Life by Leslie Haddon

Book Description

The internet, television, mobile phones, computer-based devices and other new forms of information technology are changing at a rapid pace with potentially profound but also subtle influences on social life. Yet, they also pose challenges and have to be managed. This book offers a succinct introduction to both the experience and implications of these information and communication technologies (ICTs) in everyday life. Bringing together empirical and theoretical research in a coherent way, the author offers a fresh approach to understanding ICTs and everyday life. He covers topics in key areas, such as the digital divide; children, youth and ICTs; the dynamics of ICTs within households; social networks and ICTs; and time, movement and public space in relationship to ICTs. Drawing on a broad variety of studies from different countries, the author considers the potential, or feared, social consequences of ICTs. Throughout, he analyzes what factors are shaping the debates surrounding information and communication technologies in daily life. With its concise, international approach, this book will be invaluable to professionals, policymakers and students who work in the field of ICTs.
