Disconnected: Youth, New Media, and the Ethics Gap


keys-264596_640What are the moral and ethical “disconnects” or “blind spots” youth have about online privacy, property, and participation? In what ways are they engaging with ethical sensitivity in digital spaces? Drawing on extensive interviews with young people between 10-25, Disconnected: Youth, New Media, and the Ethics Gap explored youths’ attitudes about online life and the messages they hear from adults. In this webinar for the edWeb.net Digital Citizenship community, Carrie James shared key findings from her book and offered a vision of “conscientious connectivity.” She discussed avenues for supporting kids to take socially positive online actions.
