Abstract [en]

One of the biggest social changes of our time has been the digitizing of nearly all areas of everyday life — both in the privacy of our homes and outside in the world of work and commerce. The Internet’s advancement into all areas of people’s lives has been very rapid. The changes have been so dramatic and sweeping that some use the term ‘digital revolution’. The opportunity to work, interact, communicate, and be entertained wherever we are located is now taken for granted by many people. The digital revolution has influenced people’s leisure activities and the way they interact and socialize with each other; this is especially true of younger generations (Buckingham & Willett, 2006; Palfrey & Gasser, 2008; Tapscott, 2009). This chapter explores how disabled young people access and use digital technology during leisure time, in comparison with youngsters in general.
