Abstract

One of the most well-known quotation by McLuhan is from “The Global Village” (1962): “Technology environments are not merely passive containers of people but are active processes that reshape people and other technologies alike” (p. 2). This quote is particularly relevant today, especially for children and adolescents, for whom the reshaping also involves the representation of what is legal and illegal, as well as their awareness of laws and rules intended to protect individuals from the risks of the virtual world (i.e. child grooming, cyber-bullism, privacy of personal or medical data, etc.), and of those intended to protect intellectual property or economic interests.
