Kids and technology: Is there any good news?

September 25th, 2012 No comments

What if we stopped listening to the fear-based news about cyberbullying, over-sharing, and loss of privacy?

What if we focused on research that doesn’t make for a scary headline on the evening news?

Would it surprise you to learn that a recent study by the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) and the Pew Internet Project showed 69 percent of teens reporting that their peers are mostly kind on social networking sites?

A Platform for Good is a new FOSI project aimed at changing the conversation about kids and technology. The site is designed for parents, teens, and teachers to share information and to do good online. A Platform for Good features a blog written by experts in the field, a resource center with videos and curriculum for teachers, and many other interactive features.
