Reading to and with children are wonderful ways to bond and for them to learn to read. It is a time to use one's imagination and ask questions.

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people | Literacy in a digital world | Scoop.it

A new study lends credence to what you’ve probably always suspected: social media is having a pretty negative effect on teenagers — Instagram and Snapchat being the worst culprits. The study, published today and called “Status of Mind,” was conducted by researchers for the Royal Society for Public Health in the UK. The researchers surveyed 1,479 British youths ages 14-24, asking them how they felt the different social media networks effected their mental health. They took in several factors such as body image, sleep deprivation, bullying, and self-identity.

 

The results suggest the two worst social media networks for kids are Instagram and Snapchat, as they had terrible scores for body image, bullying, and anxiety. Twitter and Facebook weren’t much better, though. YouTube was the only one that apparently inspired more positive feelings than negative ones.

It is not only effective for long-term comprehension and retention. There are other benefits. Writing is a right brain activity as we usually are taking short cuts in notes. Keyboarding is a left brain activity. A conversation engages both hemispheres.


Penelope's curator insight, October 18, 2017 11:37 AM
I've read about many a famous author who writes first drafts in longhand on yellow legal pads. Personally, I like the feel of writing with pen and paper, then transcribing into a Word document. This process seems to fully engage the creative brain.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Literacy in a digital world | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.
