The digital world has many ways for us to be informed, trading, and connect. As we learn about the efficiencies and benefits of digital use, we must also consider elements for safety and wellbeing. In this session, ESC 12's Jenipher Janek will share a glimpse into the generational differences between adults and youth when it comes to online safety, as well as present research on the perspectives of youth who encounter challenges daily that involve making healthy and safe decisions. Ultimately, our goal is to be better informed and be armed with tools to engage youth as they traverse a path of discovery and innovation with the use of technology. Not only should they be able to survive, but thrive in the digital world.
