What are children doing with technology when they are not in school? What are they learning from their technology when no one is looking, and how are they learning it? What are children thinking when they play games, make movies or send emails, and what do they wish they could do with their digital tools but can’t? This presentation attempts to answer these questions, and raise many more, as lessons from an ethnographic study are shared. A group of children are watched, questioned, listened to and played with in the hopes of better understanding what can be learned from children with their outside-of-school technology use. Through literature reviews and data collection, including the use video and audio, the researcher helps to paint a picture of children and their navigation of the digital world.
