Up With The Internet, Teens Need To Sort The Good From
have revolutionized communications, and today’s teens have
access to vast educational and entertainment resources while
online. The Technology Student Association (TSA), a national
student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of young
people interested in technology, knows it is prudent to protect
the privacy and safety of today’s youth.
its recent national conference in Orlando, Florida, TSA surveyed
nearly 600 middle and high school students — out of 4,000 attendees
about their views on the effects of spam, their practice of
file sharing and other online activities.
76 percent of TSA students agree that laws should control spam
traffic. They agree that laws should be passed that limit the
amount of spam.
the positives outweigh the negatives regarding the Internet
usage, most risks can be avoided when parents and educators
provide guidelines and raise awareness about navigating the
Internet and how to use it responsibly. For complete TSA Spam/File
Sharing Survey results, please call 703/860-9000 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.#
