Screen Smart: Growing Up in the Digital Age

| Illustrator: Alan Bay

Join the Screen Smart gang as they recall their extraordinary childhood adventures in the virtual world.

Learn about the potential traps and dangers posed by the web and how to stay alert to the dangers that come from traversing an online world. Plus, fun activities contribute to the learning experience!

Screen Smart is written by Alan Bay, as well as professors Wonsun Shin (University of Melbourne, Australia) and May O Lwin (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore). Both of the latter authors hold extensive research experience in youth, digital media, parental mediation, and marketing communications. Their academic book, Screen-obsessed: Parenting in the Digital Age, is the first book solely focusing on parental supervision of children's media use. Screen Smart is the child's accompaniment. It aims to educate children and teenagers on Internet safety and the pitfalls of being online.

Each chapter focuses on a different theme (screen time management, screen addiction, cyber impersonation and bullying, advertisement awareness) and includes activities to engage and educate readers.

The book also includes a Parent's Corner with further information and tips on how parents can effectively guide their offspring living in the multimedia environment. Germaine Tan (Senior Clinical Psychologist, Institute of Mental Health, Singapore) contributes an article.
