I Found It on the Internet: Coming of Age Online

I Found It on the Internet: Coming of Age Online, Second Edition Frances Jacobson Harris

Today’s teens immerse themselves in the world of technology as never before. But texting, tweeting, chatting, blogging, and other social networking largely occur in a free-for-all environment of unbridled access; quality takes a backseat to quantity. To help librarians, educators, and parents step in to guide teens’ decision making, Frances Jacobson Harris offers a thoroughly updated edition of her classic book, including

  • Advice on how to help young people make good decisions, especially in such thorny areas as music and media sharing
  • Tools for formulating information and communication policies, with research and commentary on the latest technology
  • Practical ways of dealing with the problematic issues of hacking, cheating, privacy, harassment, and access to inappropriate content

Packed with timely information, Harris’s book remains the best resource for being an effective technology mentor for students.
