    • 44. Social Networking and Our Children
      How should parents in today’s social media age deal with the F word question?
      Is the Internet is killing rather than fostering intelligence?
      Social networks fail to educate kids about the real world, substituting the trivia of video games for books, and promoting a mindless consumerism over serious learning.

      Is the web changing our brains?
    • 46. Social Networking and Our Children
      Is the web changing our brains?
      "I became aware of changes in my own thinking a couple of years ago,”
      Nicholas Carr, "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to our Brains"
    • 47. Social Networking and Our Children
      Is the web changing our brains?
      "I came to realize, some time in 2007, that I was losing my ability to pay deep attention to one thing over a long period of time. When I'd sit down to read a book, for instance, I was only able to sustain my concentration for a page or two. My mind would begin to crave stimulation and distraction -- it wanted to click on links, jump from page to page, check email, do some Googling.”
      Nicholas Carr, Author, "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to our Brains"

      Social Networking and Our Children
    • 52. The Internet is changing the way people read and process information. We've come to associate the acquisition of wisdom with deep reading and solitary concentration, and he says there's not much of that to be found online.

      Are children’s deep cognitive skills being replaced with short-term sensory ones?
    • 55. Social Networking and Our Children
      Are children’s deep cognitive skills being replaced with short-term sensory ones?
      "Over the past few years," Carr wrote, "I've had an uncomfortable sense that someone, or something, has been tinkering with my brain, remapping the neural circuitry, reprogramming the memory. My mind isn't going – so far as I can tell – but it's changing. I'm not thinking the way I used to think.”
      Nicholas Carr, "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to our Brains"
    • 56. Social Networking and Our Children
      Are children’s deep cognitive skills being replaced with short-term sensory ones?
      The brains of illiterate people, for example, are structurally different from those of people who can read.
    • 57. Social Networking and Our Children
      Are children’s deep cognitive skills being replaced with short-term sensory ones?
      “In general, technology can be good [for children’s cognitive development] if it is used judiciously. But if it is used in a non-judicious fashion, it will shape the brain in what I think will actually be a negative way.”
      Jordan Grafman, chief of cognitive neuroscience at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

    • 66. Social Networking and Our Children
    • 67. It's illegal. Don't take or send nude or sexually suggestive photos of yourself or anyone else.
      Non-legal consequence: the emotional (and reputation) damage that can come from having intimate photos of yourself go to a friend who can become an ex- friend and send it to everyone you know.
      Not just on phones. Sexting can be done on any media-sharing device or technology - including email and the Web. It's always a bad idea.
      Kids: Talk with your parents about sexting in a relaxed setting.
      The bottom line. Stay alert when using digital media. Critical thinking about what we upload as well as download is the best protection.

      Douglass Turner also said...
      A big negative I see from your constant flitting between social media tools …. is the resultant negative impact on the quality of your posts, comments, etc. This relentless pace impairs clear thought. Deep thinking goes out the window. Reflection is for wimps. Over time this can only have a real long term impact.
      ……this stuff will make you dumber if you're not careful.

      Too much technology:
      “If you are not ADD,
      you will be!”
      Charlie Yeager
    • 71. Social Networking and Our Children
      …….I feel like a rat in a maze running frantically trying to get out, but not knowing which way to go. Going one way, then another, then another, then getting mad because I am stuck. Trying this and trying that and nothing works with 100% success. While all the time trying to get back to the peace that I once felt while paddling a canoe in the middle of the Yukon Territory or Alaska. I feel like I am a prisoner of our society, a prisoner of my job, and a prisoner of my mind. I can't get the squirrel in my head to stop. And when the squirrel shifts into overdrive, I explode……….

      For better or worse, our children are now living their lives on the electronic network, posting their photos, revealing their desires, making their friends, defining their identities.
    • 73. Social Networking and Our Children
      “The Internet has become the world's meeting house, a modern planetary forum, where millions distribute gigabytes of personal data, photos, thoughts, Twitter messages, blogs and emails to chat, gossip, flirt and show off.”

      The Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads
      and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask
      where the good way is, and walk in it,
      and you will find rest for your souls."
      -Jeremiah 6:16 (NIV)
