The Internet can be a dark and dangerous place or a bright and educational tool for kids and teenagers. We often consider we have a measure of its dangers -the racist propaganda, the pornography, the cyberbullying or sexual blackmail-. However, we should go beyond the threats or idealist perspectives of the Internet. We need improve our knowledge of the net. We should encourage a public debate about the future of Internet. The public administrations and educative systems should promote an education in the Internet for kids and teenagers. It would be a humanistic and technical tool in order to improve democracy.
