The Rise of Online Video - YouTube - 34 views

    The rise of the amateur pro culture, the rise of the value of visual literacy, the rise of the value of teaching video as a core literacy skill! Kudos to Pew for making a video of this summary of their findings. My prediction: the future of successful online education models will be conducted via video, not text.

Overview | Pew Internet & American Life Project - 29 views

    Interesting discussion of survey results regarding the impact of digital tools on writing. The question for me is: what is making the greater impact the digital tool or our progress in adapting our writing curriculum to match the current state of how language is presented to and consumed by our students?

Social networking sites and our lives | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life ... - 53 views

    Questions have been raised about the social impact of widespread use of social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Twitter. Do these technologies isolate people and truncate their relationships? Or are there benefits associated with being connected to others in this way? The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project decided to examine social networking sites in a survey that explored people's overall social networks and how use of these technologies is related to trust, tolerance, social support, and community and political engagement. The findings presented here paint a rich and complex picture of the role that digital technology plays in people's social worlds. Wherever possible, we seek to disentangle whether people's varying social behaviors and attitudes are related to the different ways they use social networking sites, or to other relevant demographic characteristics, such as age, gender and social class.

Pew Internet & American Life Project - 0 views

  • Over half of the adult internet population is between 18 and 44 years old. But larger percentages of older generations are online now than in the past, and they are doing more activities online, according to surveys taken from 2006-2008. Contrary to the image of Generation Y as the "Net Generation," internet users in their 20s do not dominate every aspect of online life. Generation X is the most likely group to bank, shop, and look for health information online. Boomers are just as likely as Generation Y to make travel reservations online. And even Silent Generation internet users are competitive when it comes to email (although teens might point out that this is proof that email is for old people).
