Don't bother me, Mom, I'm learning! : how computer and video games are preparing your kids for twenty-first century success and how you can help! / Marc Prensky ; with a foreword and contributions ... | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Marc Prensky presents the case that video and computer game playing, within limits, is actually very beneficial to today's "Digital Native" kids, who are using them to prepare themselves for life in the 21st century.
