Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

The digital age has made new forms of connection possible, enabling ‘digital intimacies’ including the many practices of communicating, producing and sharing intimate content. This session will introduce the concept of digital intimacies – recognising the complexities of digital/online cultures and offline experiences, their risks and rewards for young people – and will explore how youth practice and education might respond to teens’ increasing visibility online, and what all this means for traditional ideas of privacy, intimate relationships and keeping children safe online.
