This book brings together innovative work happening in childhood research across disciplinary boundaries and across the world. It focuses specifically on the most cutting-edge, innovative methodological approaches in the study of children's use and learning with digital technologies and children's experiences of key 21st century trends (e.g. immigration or multiculturalism). A true effort is made to have dialogues across diverse fields and contested fields of research (including educational psychology, post-humanist literacy, narrative approaches, developmental approaches).The book is a comprehensive survey of methods in the field of children's technologies. The volume is a substantive and strategic collection of international approaches to early childhood and technologies. The authors reflect on what works and what doesn't work in relation to specific innovative research methods.
