It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

As parent of two teenagers and as a teacher of pre-teens, I took away a lot of information from It’s Complicated. First and foremost is the idea that young people have less and less access to public spaces and time in which to socialize with friends and peers. The days of our moms and dads kicking us outdoors in the morning and saying, “Don’t come back until dinner time” are over.

I love this statement about teens/students, "What they do have is natural curiosity and a willingness to dive into the unknown, figuring out how a website or app or device works on the go. This can lead to discovery, and to mistakes. By focusing on the mistakes, we lose sight of the powerful potential of technology.." 

I also love the ending. We are the guides and our role has never been more important or more complicated!

It makes a lot of sense to use a variety of mediums to impart information and to teach with technology.
