Abstract

The report explores the issues raised in providing children in care, those with special needs and/or in disadvantaged circumstances, with computers and support technology along with Internet access. The authors explore the ways in which technology provision supports wellbeing, and the ways in which the use of the technologies both enables and is enabled by the context of family and informal learning. The key role of parents and carers in this respect is emphasised.
