Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

There has been growing interest in how communities engage with and take up digital technologies. For instance, in Australia, approximately 90% of children aged 5–14 years access the Internet (ABS 2013) with 46% of children using mobile devices such as tablets and phones. Across the North American continent and in the EU, there is a similar engagement with digital technologies (Donohue 2015; EU Kids Online 2014). With fast broadband becoming more readily available in many countries, even greater online uptake is expected in the coming years (Livingstone et al. 2011).
