摘要:Young people use computers in a range of environments and for a variety of tasks.Whilst it is acknowledged that home and school are common computer use environments for children,and that local neighbourhood may modify computer use,the impact of these environments on children’s exposure patterns and computer use is not well understood.Objective:The aim of our study was to investigate the influence of home,school and neighbourhood on young people’s computer use.Method:1351 children in years 1,6,9 and 11 from 10 schools in metropolitan Western Australia were surveyed.Results:Most young people have access to computers at home and school,with high weekly use in both environments.Mean weekly hours and duration of use was at least 3 times greater at home than school.Neighbourhood associations were evident for frequency,duration and nature of computer use.Socially orientated computer use was more evident at home with young people from lower SES neighbourhoods.School computer exposure was more evident with young people from higher SES neighbourhoods.High use of home and school computers were associated with each other.Conclusion:Previous studies have identified a potential impact of computer exposure on young people’s health and development.As aspects of computer exposure(including access,amount and nature of use) have been shown to be influenced by young people’s home,school and neighbourhood,a better understanding of environmental influences is required.This will assist in understanding and managing the impact of computer use on young people’s health and development.
