Virtual Worlds for Kids

The editorial team for this issue includes:


Sun Sun Lim, National University of Singapore

Lynn Schofield Clark, University of Denver, USA

 

Virtual worlds have made notable inroads into the lives of children, affording online extensions of their offline lives. In this article, we propose a conceptual framework for understanding the space that virtual worlds occupy in children’s play and the ways in which children’s participation in them overlap with their everyday play experiences, both offline and mediated.
