  • Teens
    • Wayne Basinger
      This is the age group the article will discuss.
  • "Teens gather in networked public spaces to negotiate identity, gossip, support one another, jockey for status, collaborate, share information, flirt, joke, and goof around,"
    • Wayne Basinger
      This is the list of things that students do at the sites.
  • ...1 more annotation...
  • To the uninitiated, however, the photos, videos, and cryptic comments that kids post on their personal pages often appear as impenetrable as a tenth grader's cluttered locker. Because schools tend to block access to social-networking sites, many educators have a tough time harnessing their potential as a teaching tool and modeling appropriate networking-site behaviors.

      Blocking of the sites makes it difficult for teachers to use it effectively.

Identity Theft Resource Center | A Nonprofit Organization - 12 views

    "Identity theft can affect everyone, including teenagers. It is important for you to know what information is needed to steal your identity and the best ways of protecting your information. Your information, in the wrong hands, can 'jack your life!' Identity theft is when someone uses your information for their gain. Thieves can use information about you, such as your social security number, to open up fraudulent credit cards, get student loans, and even get out of traffic tickets. Because of this, it is important to be knowledgeable when giving out any personal information about yourself, including people you trust. This information includes your social security number, driver's license number, state ID number, any banking information or your student ID number. This type of information should only be given out when it is absolutely necessary. In Teen Space you will find suggestions and information on the topic of Identity Theft. As well, we have lesson plans, games, and a video on identity theft.…"

Elif Bilgin - Extraordinary People Changing the Game - 0 views

    Plastic destroys our ecosystem yet we keep reproducing them. It's as if we are only after making life more convenient for the present and not at the very least concerned about the fate of our children, who will basically inherit this planet. It's easy to just ignore this for now especially if we delude ourselves with false hope that someone else will figure out a way to solve a major problem such as pollution. Elif Bilgin, a gifted teen from Istanbul, isn't too selfish to just think of the now. She made bio-plastics out of banana peels. To read more about Elif Bilgin visit
