    • Evolution of online safety since 1994 Porn Predators Sexual abuse images (child porn) Cyberbullying Reputation management Digital citizenship Security Privacy Resilience & self-respect Understanding not all are equally vulnerable Kindness Thriving – positive outcomes
    • Of course there are risks in life, so…
    • Who can best protect youth?
    • Or young people themselves?
    • Ultimately, the best filter runs between the child’s ears, not on a device Protection that lasts a lifetime Training wheels for young kids
    • How you treat others affects your risk * EU Kids Online +Internet Safety Technology Taskforce “Among those who do not bully others, being bullied is relatively rare 8% offline only, and 4% online”* “Youth who engage in online aggressive behavior by making rude or nasty comments or frequently embarrassing others are more than twice as likely to report online interpersonal victimization.” +
    • Avoid Fear & Exaggeration Encourage honesty, calm discussion & social norming Caution only works if it’s believable and actionable
    • Social norms approach • People emulate how they think their peers behave • If people think their friends don’t smoke, they’re less likely to smoke. • Same is true with over-eating, excessive alcohol use and other negative behaviors, including bullying* *Assessing Bullying in New Jersey Secondary Schools: Applying the Social Norms Model to Adolescent Violence: Craig, Perkins 2008
    • What is a “Citizen” “A person who legally belongs to a country and has the rights and protection of that country” “An inhabitant of a city or town; especially : one entitled to the rights and privileges of a freeman.” (Merriam Webster online dictionary)
    • What is a “Digital Citizen” “…There is a basic set of rights extended to every digital citizen. • Digital citizens have the right to privacy, free speech, etc. • Basic digital rights must be addressed, discussed, and understood in the digital world. With responsibilities as well. • Users must help define how the technology is to be used in an appropriate manner. • In a digital society these two areas must work together for everyone to be productive. ” #7 of the “Nine Themes of Digital Citizenship” by Mike Ribble
