ITSRG Graduate Fellow Jeff Caroll will present on the policy and place implications of cyber safety in the conduction of a youth centered information technology program today at the AAG meeting in Boston.
The purpose of this presentation will be to shed light on the change of place in the use of information technology that subjects a student to different standards of cyber safety. These following questions will be addressed: How do changes in "IT places" inevitably result in changes in "policy places?" What are the policy and practice implications in the administration of iT after-school programming? How does one teach individuals how to understand subjection to different policy realms as place changes? Last, this presentation will offer empirical data drawn from our students to highlight perceptions of cyber safety highlighting the need for increased cyber safety attention across policy realms.
