Description:

"This work was published a decade ago, and inspired cultural phenomena from The Teletubbies and Pokemon to Meetup.com and Moveon.org. The word "screenager" has even been accepted to the Oxford English Dictionary. This brand new updated and expanded edition includes not just new examples but new ideas and conclusions drawn based on 10 years of experience watching these ideas become incorporated into academia, business, education, and culture. This special edition also includes a series of essays and articles by the author that demonstrate the various ways these ideas can be contextualized for different audiences. ScreenAgers is both a great introduction to the field of media ecology as well as one of its most dimensional and passionately argued texts."--BOOK JACKET.
