Abstract

Our limited knowledge about what teens do online and inability to protect them from harm evokes a sense of fear that makes us prone to “risk discourse.” However, this mindset overshadows the potential benefits of youth engaging online and constrains our ability to design online safety mechanisms that are developmentally appropriate for empowering adolescents to become resilient to risks. Our goal in attending this workshop is to find actionable ways to incorporate new asset-based practices that prioritize teens’ strengths and capacities to improve adolescent online safety.

Keywords: adolescent online safety; resilience; asset-based design
