Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

After introducing the Internet usage by K-12 in Japan, we discussed followings;

1) How do they manage digital identities?

2) How do they learn about identity and privacy?

3) What can we do for them?

  • Do teens feel themselves safe or are they safe really?
  • What “risky” means varies by generation. Resilience is important.
  • We can’t solve the problem at the level that created the problem.
  • It is necessary to educate not only students but also teachers and parents. Kids are often more aware of online risk than teachers.
  • Real-name policy in US must be considered.
