Abstract

This chapter explores the marriage of popular culture images, media and technology and the manner in which these are implemented in preschool settings. Discussing parents' choices and teacher's opinions, this chapter examines popular culture in children's lives as social symbols. It is specifically concerned with the manner in which social class and preschool ideology contribute to or detract from children's access to popular culture technology.
