The Digital Disparities Facing Lower-Income Teenagers

The Digital Disparities Facing Lower-Income Teenagers | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
“When there are disparities, even if it’s a question of how smart your phone is, teens and tweens may not have access to what they need — not just for school, but for other parts of their lives as well,” Dr. Wartella said. “They aren’t able to participate in the way that more wealthy teens and tweens are able to.”
BeerBergman's insight:

It might be interesting to do research to find out how the dominant discourse on social media and Internet usage affects children, tweens and teens, as well as how it affects supposedly digital divides.

BeerBergman's insight:

Another story about whether the youth are internet-savy or not... But the best part of this story is in the comments. Here are a few.

Aren't we overdoing it with internet control? Honestly, when I meet someone in person, I don't reduce them to their internet presence, which can be made up, misunderstood, maliciously manipulated or otherwise compromised. The human being in front of me commands more respect than its digital avatar. If you try to control your online activities too much you will stifle the development of your personality. Too much control can be detrimental to cultural development in general. So, maybe this isn't a very important topic to teach. We should teach more Kant instead and keep asking ourselves about the essence of truth, its artificial environments, the "truth" of live media, presence, grammatology, and other such silly philosophical questions...

    Kant? Truth? Try Samuel Butler, and reliability.
    Try being relevant as well, and recognize that even if you could meet all these people personally (which obviously you never ever could), they'd tell you less about their real selves, not more.

Sorry. I think the real purpose of the Internet is to be creative. That probably doesn't fit the screwed-down image advocated above. Look, it's casual- no?

    • jem2222  Henry Vandenburgh  5 days ago

      It can be used to foster creativity, but that is not its purpose. The purpose these days is to make money, in some cases extraordinary, obscene amounts of it. Casual? It makes no sense to be casual when one is surrounded by bullies, data miners, extortionists, identity thieves, etc."
