Digital Natives: Growing Up Online “ Friending” in the 21 st Century Alecia Berman-Dry Technology Coordinator, St. John’s Episcopal School

A Coming of Age Experience The term digital native is being applied to individuals who have grown up immersed in technology. The opposite term is the "digital immigrant" those individuals that are trying to get to terms with digital technology. A "digital native" will refer to their new "camera", a digital immigrant will refer to their new "digital camera“ An image-focused (visual) versus a textual (Gutenberg era) perspective ( InFORMation Movie ) Social Media is an important part of that experience

YOU NEED A WEB FILTER

(see resources at end for ideas)

YOU NEED your computers in public rooms. A closed door is a dangerous situation waiting to explode—yes, I mean to be that dramatic.

Computers In Rooms… “ I gave Ryan one of them. I allowed him to put it in his room . I thought it would be a great place. He could put it at his desk where he did his homework; he can use it for homework; he can type up his reports; he can research. Around this time now we got the broadband Internet, and ... he was starting to get into e-mail, so he was e-mailing his uncles and his grandmother. ... Somewhere in the early middle school years, he started to get into instant messaging . I can't tell you exactly when because it kind of snuck up on me. ... That kicked off a lot of discussion about: ... "I don't want you chatting with strangers, and I don't want you giving out your real name, your phone number, your address, and I don't want you sending pictures to anybody. If somebody comes to you and wants a picture of you, even if it's your friends, I want you to come to us for permission. I don't want you sending pictures of yourself to people." ... I said: "Look, you can do all this stuff, but I need to know the passwords for these accounts . ... I promise I'm not going to spy on you; I'm not going to read your personal e-mails. But God forbid you just disappear one day, I don't want to waste any time with AOL or Microsoft Messenger or Yahoo! trying to get them to give me access to your account. Time will be of the essence. I'm going to want immediate access, and I don't want to have to go through lawyers or with law enforcement either." That was a very critical rule that sort of played out in a way I had never imagined until later on after Ryan's death. http:// www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/kidsonline/interviews/halligan.html#2

Anne Collier, “My Space Unravelled” “ Fear is bad. Fear is actually increasing risk, because when we're afraid, we shut down communications with our kids. When we start banning things and overreacting, they want to get as far away from us as they possibly can. And so what do they do online? They go into stealth mode. And there are so many devices they can use to connect, there are so many hot spots and friend's houses and libraries and cafes and school and all these places where they can go online where we can't control them. If we really want to control every movement of their lives, they're at greater risk, actually, if we shut down communication.”
