Doris Settles


Doris Settles loves technology. But she also understands the complexities, barriers, and risks that the advent of user-created content have wrought. Author of Understanding i-KIDS (Pelican 2011) and its companion workbook Understanding i-KIDS: A Workbook for Grownups (Pelican 2011), Settles has been recognized by Blackboard and the University of Kentucky as a teacher in the virtual environment, and by the U.S. Department of Justice as a researcher and advocate. She speaks regularly at regional, national, and international conferences. She is a self-avowed “naturalized citizen” in the digital society; through her writing, workshops, and professional development for educators, law enforcement personnel, mental health workers, and social workers, she continues to advocate real and meaningful shifts in how we work with youth to address these issues.
