We often focus on the risks involved when teens roam free on the internet. Since there are a lot of people in cyber space with cruel intentions, we certainly have to take these risks seriously. At the same time, however, the digital world is also a world of learning, and according to this article from the New York Times, teenagers who socialise online most often do so with people their own age who they already know. Why not read the article with your English class and see what the teenagers themselves have to say about this? It might turn into an interesting discussion.
