New Study Shows Time Spent Online Important for Teen Development - MacArthur Foundation - 0 views

  •  
    Key points: -There is a generation gap in how youth and adults view the value of online activity. -Youth are navigating complex social and technical worlds by participating online. -Young people are motivated to learn from their peers online. (this is a key finding in the study and very relevant to educators) -Most youth are not taking full advantage of the learning opportunities of the Internet. (another finding that could impact the way teachers engage students in online learning) "The research demonstrates that, although many young people are developing a broad range of sophisticated new literacy and technical skills, they are also facing new challenges in how to manage their visibility and social relationships online."

The generation raised on the internet | The kids are alright | The Economist - 0 views

  •  
    WORRIES about the damage the internet may be doing to young people has produced a mountain of books-a suitably old technology in which to express concerns about the new. Robert Bly claims that, thanks to the internet, the "neo-cortex is finally eating itself". Today's youth may be web-savvy, but they also stand accused of being unread, bad at communicating, socially inept, shameless, dishonest, work-shy, narcissistic and indifferent to the needs of others.

  •  
    Terrific article about what literacy really means - books and periodicals, online reading, etc. "Some Web evangelists say children should be evaluated for their proficiency on the Internet just as they are tested on their print reading comprehension. Starting next year, some countries will participate in new international assessments of digital literacy, but the United States, for now, will not."
