Abstract

This chapter will examine how preschool teachers can facilitate the use of popular culture oriented technology in the classroom. Acknowledging that ideology and social class play a major role in the inclusion/rejection of popular culture technology children interact with in the United States, this chapter outlines the approaches teachers can take in understanding (and in some cases incorporating) popular culture technology into the classroom to more effectively bridge home and school environments.
