Children's Journeys Through the Information Age by Sandra Calvert addresses many of the issues surrounding our culture's continuing immersion into technology, looking particularly at the current and emerging information technologies influencing children. Calvert poses questions about the effects of these technologies and discusses their meaning for parents, teachers, and policymakers. For instance, Calvert looks at specific software designs and mediums (i.e. TV, Diskette, CD-ROM) to explore how gender role, ethnic, and racial stereotypes are carried to intended audiences through implicit messages in these programs.
