This article from the Mindshift got me thinking again. It recognises the need for us to teach children how to be safe respectful citizens on the net. To recognise dangers and threats and to have the tolls to deal in the right way with these. To put up too many safety nets will not allow the children to make the small mistakes and to learn from this.
I always harp back to crossing the road, riding a bike , driving a car. We provide scaffolding for our children, at the right level over time to allow the safe practises to be built. We need to do this with the Internet.
