Young people and digital technology

by James Fawcett August 8, 2014 A

This is a great resource for working with young people and digital technology. I was surprised to read:

Would you believe that the percentages of young people who report sexting, feeling bullied or harassed on social media, and having seen explicit images online are all declining?

This is then balanced with the below quote:

Or that a large percentage of young people have told researchers that some of their happiest memories of time spent with their families have centered around things like creating music playlists, online family Christmas cards, and digital scrapbooks?

How are we helping and encouraging young people we work with to create these ‘happy’ memories? Equally how can we help the young people we are working with to have a spiritual experience or encourage  faith development through digital media and technology. Please do comment below if you have any thoughts or experience of this.
