conference contributionposted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Shona Leitch, Matthew Warren
New Technology is an important aspect of society, but the impact of new technology has changed the way in which society can view and deal with many traditional issues. Young people have access to the internet and in many cases are left to their own devices and free to explore a variety of sites via the internet, even if the content is unsuitable. The paper will explore the issue of how to control the internet and how young people deal with the Internet. The paper will explore the issues of government and also school in helping young people with these new challenges.
