Child online safety is not a merely a child protection problem. And the solution cannot come from the angle of “protection” alone, rather it needs to come from that of “empowerment” of all stakeholders: children, families, schools, industries, and nations. It must be brought about by good education, proactive social infra-structures, and ethical businesses.
Park uses DQ (Digital Intelligence) as a key thinking frame on how education/skilling in the digital age. The key premise of this book is that “technology is only meaningful when it enhances humanness”. Moreover, DQ is all about the empowerment of individuals in the digital age to become “masters” of technology, rather than “slaves” to it.
