From Webkinz and Club Penguin to Facebook and Myspace: Growing up Digital From Webkinz and Club Penguin to Facebook and Myspace: Growing up Digital Presentation Transcript

  • From and to : growing up digital : and Sacha Chua
  • How do you make friends ? How do you hang out ? How do you stay in touch ? More and more people are doing all of that online.
  • Other people don’t get it.
    • Your parents didn’t grow up with Facebook.
    • Your teachers might not know about Myspace.
    • This is brand new territory.
    • If you want to be in it, you’ll need to keep yourself safe , and you’ll need to help other people understand .
  • A bit of perspective:
    • The Internet started out as a way for researchers to connect in case the world went kaboom. (~40 years ago)
    • Then companies joined. Most websites were like brochures. (~ 15 years ago)
    • Search got much better. E-commerce became popular. (~ 10 years ago)
    • Now it’s about people connecting with each other and sharing what they made. (~ 3 years ago)
    And things are changing even faster now.
  • Remember the first day of school? It’s different now. You can make friends even before you go on campus.
  • You can keep in touch with lots of people. Find out how they’re doing. What they’re feeling. Who they’re seeing (or not seeing). What they’re thinking. Where they’re going.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • I keep in touch with 305 friends through Facebook . By the time you see this, there will be more. updates - stories - events – photos – cool videos - favorite websites - even relationships We hang out. We keep in touch.
  •  
  • This is a good thing.
  • It can also be a bad thing.
  • “ Children under 13 years old are not permitted access to Facebook.” Why not?
  • Stay out of trouble.
    • You don’t have to be friends with everyone who asks you.
    • Think before giving out your information.
    • Think before sharing your secrets.
    • Think before meeting up with people.
  • Change your privacy settings so that only your friends can find you.
  • Think ahead.
    • The Internet remembers.
    • When you’re applying for your dream job , do you want your boss to see that photo you took on a dare ?
  • Stand up for yourself.
    • Don’t tolerate cyberbullying.
    • Block annoying people.
    • Talk to someone you can trust.
  • This is not easy. Even grownups get it wrong.
    • Stay out of trouble.
    • Think ahead.
    • Stand up for yourself.
    Facebook, Myspace, and other sites are still good ways to make friends, hang out, and keep in touch. Just THINK .
