Abstract

Young people are more socially connected than
ever before through online social networks
such as Facebook and Myspace, yet in some
ways their solitary participation in the world online
leaves young people more isolated. By missing out
on more traditional face-to-face social encounters
and away from the watchful eyes of their parents,
young people face moral dilemmas that impact
on their personal development as they mature
into adulthood. This article explores the moral
development issues raised when young people
interact in cyberspace. As the school curriculum
is increasingly supported by new technologies,
particularly in recent years to support the
personalisation agenda, these ethical issues
have become the concern of both parents and
educators. To prepare young people for success
they must be taught ethical online behaviour in
addition to traditional academic skills.
