Have a look at: Patricia M. Greenfield (2009). Technology and Informal Education: What is taught and what is learned, Science, 323, 69-71. PDF reprint.

While the article focuses on learning from using technology it goes beyound and includes an interesting list of references. Quote “[...] no one medium can do everything. Every medium has its strengths and weaknesses; every medium develops some cognitive skills at the expense of others. Although the visual capabilities of television, video games, and the Internet may develop impressive visual intelligence, the cost seems to be deep processing: mindful knowledge acquisition, inductive analysis, critical thinking, imagination, and reflection.”
