PBS Teachers | . A Compelling Look at Online Adolescent Behavior, Warts and All | PBS

Growing Up Online, which airs tonight at 9pm ET, pulls no punches when it comes to discussing the risky behaviors young people are engaging in online. But it also places them in a broader context, examining how their online behavior is an extension of what adolescents have always done offline. It’s also refreshing to see a television production not participate in the “predator panic” that has dominated so much news coverage regarding social networks. Instead, it explores the need for schools and parents to address directly risky adolescent behavior and how it’s exacerbated in a digital environment.
