This is a great article, by Rebecca Levey, geared towards parents, on teens and tweens and their use of social media. It made me question what our roles and responsibilities are as educators. One of my favorite quotes from the article:
"I would never hand my daughters the keys to the car when they turn 16 without having had some kind of driver's training — not to mention passing their driving test. Yet my girls have a supercomputer connected to the world in the palm of their hand every day, and no instruction manual. That had to change. This isn't about care and responsibility for the device, it's about having a social media playbook so they can understand the rules of the game and be as safe and smart as possible."
