Abstract: As the number of tools available for learning within computer-based tasks proliferates, so too do the tasks. This paper describes how families use technology and new media for multi-tasking in order to collaboratively accomplish many routine tasks around their homes. Families employ a number of approaches to media multi-tasking, and their sociotechnical practices reflect how children learn to multi-task, learn through multi-tasking, and learn despite multi-tasking. I draw on these practices to explain how families manage shared- and divergent -objects of activity at home, and how technology is implicated in this maintenance work. I offer a multi-dimensional framework for multi-tasking that suggests how determining what is consequential for learning with technology is often contingent on a number of tools, tasks, purposes, and people.
