Technology has certainly changed the way people communicate with one another.
Certain technologies can also be risky for youth, and students needs to be taught the inherent dangers of such fast moving technologies (from phones to social media and more).
Teens also need to be sensitized to the emotional effects of some behaviors, where technology is concerned (such as cyber-bullying) and learn digital citizenship to support each other in today’s world.

A brief discussion between each scenario should occur.
This game is an overview of cyber-bullying, using media to communicate in relationships, and some of the physical and emotional risks involved.
