The United States is currently grappling with how to prepare our students to be computer literate citizens in the competitive technological world we live in. Understanding how children develop computer knowledge, and the ways that adults are able to guide their computer learning experiences, is a vital task facing parents and educators. This groundbreaking book is an attempt to fill a gap in current understanding of how we become computer literate and proposes a theory of how computer literacy skills emerge in computer users.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A Choice Outstanding Book of 2009

"The book is essential for anyone studying literacy or looking for suggestions on curricular inclusion of computer literacy. Quantitative and qualitative researchers will find this book valuable for the design and execution of the study. Robinson's text is incisive and most immediately complementary to scholarship in education, English, psychology, sociology and information science... Highly recommended."-L.H. Taylor Jr., Choice (2009), Vol. 46, No. 11

"Emergent Computer Literacy is an admirably concise study with a number of important implications for future research on children and computer literacy in the "information age". The book will enlighten both researchers and parents alike and ask them to reconsider the development of their children and their assimilation into a technologically driven society. I recommend this book to researchers and also parents as an important starting point to consider the role of the new digital literacies affecting children's education around the world."--Jeremy White, International Journal of Emerging Technologies and Society ( 2009), Vol. 7, No. 2
