Challenging ‘Internet safety’ as a subject to be taught

""Way back" in 2008 – at least a decade after "online safety" was starting to be seen as a subject that needed to be taught to children – I suggested that it was becoming obsolete. Now what I'm seeing is that it never really was a single stand-alone subject that could become obsolete. We'll look back on it as a risk-prevention placeholder that society created until our research-based understanding of the Internet and youth online practices replaced the myths and misinformation that circulated in the public discourse for far too long."
