Young Canadians in a Wireless World, Phase IV: Talking to Youth and Parents about Online Resiliency

Young Canadians in a Wireless World, Phase IV: Talking to Youth and Parents about Online Resiliency

MediaSmarts conducted focus groups with youth ages 11 to 17 and their parents to better understand what is working for young people online and what needs to be changed or improved so that young people get the most out of their online experiences and their interactions with digital technology – both at home and in the classroom. Through these conversations we discovered that youth are deeply aware of the pitfalls and benefits of digital technology. This research calls attention to how we might help youth across Canada be more resilient online – with more balance, trust, and support – and forms the foundation for a national survey of students to take place in 2020.
