  • Description:
    "Electronic media create tremendous positive social and learning opportunities for adolescents, but new technology also comes with some degree of risk. With the development of new cell phones that are small enough to fit into young children's hands and that are designed to be visually attractive to a younger audience, more and younger children will become competent and frequent users of new technology. This growth will likely contribute to the continued increase of electronic aggression. Accordingly, research needs to continue and be attentive to some of the issues raised in this brief to gain a better understanding of electronic aggression prevalence, etiology, and prevention. As this field moves forward, it must be rapid and flexible enough to keep up with the evolving nature of technology, or it will be limited to knowledge, intervention strategies, and policies that are outdated and restricted in application potential. Researchers are encouraged to partner with young people, parents, and educators who are "on the front lines" and may be more aware than researchers of individual and contextual factors that are associated with electronic aggression." - p. 16
