Research Project with Ontario Tech Faculty of Education to Explore How Youth Can Develop Activism on Social Media

Project will look at how youth can use social media for sharing and engaging in activism that promote emotional and social wellness. We at Tech for Good Canada, like many others, focus on digital citizenship that protects children when it comes to social media use. Teaching resources that deal with protecting their mental health, their privacy, handling cyberbullying, preventing risky behaviours such as sexting, and deciphering fake news abound online. These are all important issues to combat. However, youth do need to understand how they can use social media to enhance their sense of empowerment, civic enyagement, and pro-social behaviours, as these tools are largely designed for short, frivolous, even sensational communication.
