Last week I was lucky enough to travel to SxSWedu, a vibrant collective of educators, administrators and edtech entrepreneurs in Austin, TX.
I gave a presentation called TheirSpace: Educating Digitally Ethical Teens, which was a reflection on 5 years of talking with middle schoolers about the intersection of media, identity and adolescence.

Attendees were an enthusiastic group of educators who were interested in the topic. Several questions were posed throughout the session, and teachers used Twitter to share their own experiences and insights using the #theirspace hashtag. This information, along with resources for further learning, are available below:
