Watch all 7 segments of the pbs feature “Growing Up Online”, and consider the questions below.
Questions to ponder after watching "Growing Up Online":
- The program describes social networking sites as places where kids post pictures, accumulate friends, post messages to others and describe themselves. Social networking also allows young people to express themselves, experiment with different perspectives, and play with aspects of their identity. Do you think it would be possible to use social networking in the classroom to better facilitate students learning? Can you imagine an example to support your opinion?
- Who should be responsible for teaching about cyber safety-- parents or school?
- What is or should be a teachers’ role in students' online life?
