If we are to keep our young people safely empowered in a fast-changing world of technology and communication, then it is absolutely essential to understand that world as it is, not as it was or how we wish it were. Top-down education, based on simplistic and immutable lists of dos and don’ts, becomes increasingly irrelevant when the students we are hoping to teach know more about their digital environment than we do, which is why, despite having worked for 14 years at the ‘cutting edge of dealing with bullying of all types’, Adrienne Katz surveyed over 9,000 children and teenagers about their online experiences specifically before putting together this must-read guide for educators on how to engage youngsters with strategies to ensure they remain protected from harm in cyberspace, whilst still making the most of the educational and social opportunities to be found there.
