Deborah Welsh's insight:

Do parents really know what their children are doing online? (Have parents ever really known what their children are doing?)  The McAfee report reveals the importance of maintaining the conversation between parents and children.

Thank you for sharing, Bonnie. This issue of digital literacy and citizenship is vital. Too often we make the mistake of believing that kids know how to use digital resources effectively because of their exposure t tech at a young age. I believe kids are digital naives, not natives. These resources help address the issue. Again, thank yo for sharing.

My interview last week with attorney Stephanie Tuttle about the possible legal ramifications for minors who “sext,” or forward sexts, or harass sexters, sent me searching for a factsheet to help educators and parents know how to talk to kids about staying safe online in a wider context. Here’s the best of what I’ve found. Hope it’s helpful.

Teens move quickly through various social media, so it is more important to help them be safe and responsible rather than try and keep up with them. A digital citizenship program in your school is essential.
