Abstract
About this book: The evolution of digital media has enhanced global perspectives in all facets of communication, greatly increasing the range, scope, and accessibility of shared information. Due to the tremendously broad-reaching influence of digital media, its impact on learning, behavior, and social interaction has become a widely discussed topic of study, synthesizing the research of academic scholars, community educators, and developers of civic programs. The Handbook of Research on the Societal Impact of Digital Media is an authoritative reference source for recent developments in the dynamic field of digital media. This timely publication provides an overview of technological developments in digital media and their myriad applications to literacy, education, and social settings. With its extensive coverage of issues related to digital media use, this handbook is an essential aid for students, instructors, school administrators, and education policymakers who hope to increase and optimize classroom incorporation of digital media. This innovative publication features current empirical studies and theoretical frameworks addressing a variety of topics including chapters on instant messaging, podcasts, video sharing, cell phone and tablet applications, e-discussion lists, e-zines, e-books, e-textiles, virtual worlds, social networking, cyberbullying, and the ethical issues associated with these new technologies.
