  39. MarciaBaxterMagolda’s TheoryofSelf-Authorship
  40. Student explores and experiments openly with social media. This is strongly influenced by authorities (parents/guardians) through access and peers through peer culture. Student does not understand how online and offline interactions can impact each other or possess a sophisticated understanding of context. Student makes conscious choices about social media usage and how it fits into life desires, outlook, and goals. Student realizes that one’s online life requires constant renegotiation as one’s goals, needs, contexts, and circumstances change. @paulgordonbrown
