    ABSTRACT

    In this poster we report the findings from a study of technologies in the home and school and use these results to discuss the validity and variability of children's reports of technologies.

    The results indicate that children may not understand well the types of interactive technologies that were discussed and that there may be some confusion about the names of technologies. In addition, the study indicated some confusion about where a technology resides.
