At 13, I’ve been noticing something different: Facebook is losing teens lately. And I think I know why.

Sue Osborne's insight:

My 16yo daughter uses instant messaging more, and Snapschat and Instagram. I think she is embarrassed at how much I use Facebook and Twitter - they are old ideas to her.

US institutions of higher education and US local governments are under extraordinary pressure to cut costs and eliminate from institutional or governmental ledgers any expenses whose absence would cause little or no pain.

A very relevant question. Educators are in an uncomfortable position between the right to express themselves as they like in a public (or private) forum and their social role as educators and 'role models'.

Michael Jongen's curator insight, November 16, 2015 6:59 PM

Australia is facing a crisis of computer literacy after the latest national IT tests showed a sharp drop in results among school students. According to the report released by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) on Tuesday, nationally only 55 per cent of students were considered IT proficient. The results come despite up to 98 per cent of students reporting that they had access to a computer at home. "One of the things that we are observing here is that the increased use of devices for social and communication purposes has hidden the decline in the use of more sophisticated uses of the devices," said ACARA's chief executive officer Robert Randall. 

Sue Osborne's comment, November 16, 2015 7:24 PM
This is interesting and supports the anecdotal evidence I see with students every day. I have Year 7 students who don't know how to print a document in colour, who are GLUED to their iPads. Frustrating - they think they know it all because they are constantly attached to the device, but they know VERY little.
