What kids really mean when they say “creepy”
Science research on kids and technology
Researchers have done some studies on how kids perceive technology and their definition of “creepy.” A study came from the University of Washington, targeting the privacy and safety designed for kids.
Overview kids refer to saying creepy when rejecting technology. There are mixed reactions to how kids perceive things they review on the internet and the use of technology — perceptions based on what they have observed and how safe they feel.
For example, the article stated some kids felt insecure around laptops as parents cover the cam view on the device. Others feel confident with mobile phones because their parents use them regularly.
What are your thoughts on kids and technology? Should kids have access to digital devices? Should the internet be controlled?
