Every time we share content online, from tweets and Facebook posts to creating blogs, websites and leaving comments, we contribute to forming our digital identity. Toshie Takahashi finds that in Japan, parents are less involved in teaching their children about the internet. She argues that parents need to overcome their blind spots and become active mediators to help children build digital literacies. Toshie is Professor in the School of Culture, Media and Society at Waseda University in Tokyo. Her current research is an ethnography centred on cross-cultural research into youth and digital media among US, UK and Japan.
