Children’s virtual play worlds

As children’s digital lives become more relevant to schools and educators, the question of play and learning is being revisited in new and interesting ways. Children’s Virtual Play Worlds: Culture, Learning, and Participation provides a more reasoned account of children’s play engagements in virtual worlds through a number of scholarly perspectives, exploring key concerns and issues which have come to the forefront. The global nature of the research in this edited volume embraces many different areas of study including school-based research, sociology, cultural studies, psychology and contract law, showing how children’s play and learning in virtual spaces has great potential and possibilities.
