I do not believe that we can entirely ban these spaces, tools, and practices from our childrenโ€ฆnor would we want to. But, we need to identify and promote our expectations for what is meant by access to their โ€œmeaningful online relationships and knowledgeโ€ means now, and in their future.

Consent is such an interesting topic Ian. With the world ever changing, I am not sure how we best account for what we maybe inadvertently giving up. Banning does not feel like the answer, but putting our hands in the air and giving up is not much better. I aspire for a ‘good enough’ (if that is the right term) digital mindfulness. Where I think I understand, but am also aware that there is most likely a lot occuring outside of my peripheral vision.

  1. Hey Aaron. I really appreciate the idea of being โ€œmindfulโ€ of technology. We cannot address all of these complexities, but we must also recognize them and not put our โ€œhead in the sand.โ€ We need to be responsible, mindful users.
