New Report: ‘A Cyber-Wisdom Approach to Digital Citizenship Education’

13th April 2021Publications

The Centre has recently published A Cyber-Wisdom Approach to Digital Citizenship Education: Insights from Adolescents and Parents. The report presents and compares key findings from two surveys which explored the extent to which both adolescents and parents understand the importance of, and act on, wisdom and character virtues in the digital age. Key findings from the surveys suggest that the virtue that most adolescents want their friends to show on social media is wisdom, with 38% choosing this as one of their top two desired qualities. Similarly, asked to select two qualities, most parents (56%) want their children to show wisdom when using the internet. Further findings are discussed in greater depth throughout the report, available here. Relatedly, a press release and two blog posts can be found, respectively, here, here and here.
