Designing Digital Experiences for Positive Youth Development

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the different ways in which the digital landscape is promoting collaborative endeavors that not only impact the work life but also the social sphere by promoting a sense of compassion and willingness to respond to needs of other individuals, to assist others, and to use technology as means to help others. The chapter suggests that tools for collaboration are essential for enabling the formation of caring networks. This chapter discusses how technologically-supported collaboration can be a positive factor in development. Technology can play the role of a coordinator, a supporter, and a meeting place.
