#DigitalParenting: Cyber Kids, Cyber Bullying, Cyber Balance Barbara C Trolley, Constance Hanel (2010, Corwin)

This book was a little confusing, and took me some time to work through - the authors (psychologists/counsellors)  kept saying that they are pro the positives of the internet, but the focus seems to be more on the negative side (despite giving Nancy Willard a big thumbs up), and quite often stats given to support findings are from quite old research that has since been debunked - or at least challenged.

Wary about the global nature of technology, so be interesting to see how much…

[MEDIA] It’s #SaferInternetDay, I spoke to @PremierRadio, @BBCLeeds and @UCBNewsTeam
