The Future of Learning Institutions in a Digital Age

"In this report, Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg focus on the potential for shared and interactive learning made possible by the Internet. They argue that the single most important characteristic of the Internet is its capacity for world-wide community and the limitless exchange of ideas. The Internet brings about a way of learning that is not new or revolutionary but is now the norm for today’s graduating high school and college classes. It is for this reason that Davidson and Goldberg call on us to examine potential new models of digital learning and rethink our virtually enabled and enhanced learning institutions."

Social networking causes teens to drink and smoke drugs, study says

Social networking causes teens to drink and smoke drugs, study says | Social Media Research | Scoop.it
A new study tries to pin social networks like Facebook as the reason why kids are drinking, smoking, and doing...

 

Can you believe this study was done by The National Center on Addiction and Substances Abuse at Columbia?

 

Here's what the authors of the article say which also expresses my opinion on that:

"While the study’s authors seem to try to be linking social networking to these bad habits, we don’t really see much of a connection. Teens have been doing a lot of smoking, drinking, and drugging far before social networking came about in 2004(ish)."

 

Luckily the parents have also detected the missing logic behind the statistical correlations:

 

"However, the study found that 9 of 10 parents do not think teens spending time on social networking sites like Facebook are likelier to drink or use drugs."

 

Here's the link to the study at National Center: http://www.casacolumbia.org/templates/NewsRoom.aspx?articleid=648&zoneid=51
