  15. 15. <ul><li>The study, Generation M: Media in the Lives of 8-18 Year-olds, examined media use among a nationally representative sample of more than 2,000 3rd through 12th graders who completed detailed questionnaires, including nearly 700 self-selected participants who also maintained seven-day media diaries. </li></ul>U.S. Research
  16. 16. <ul><li>“ Keeping up with the changing face of media in this country can leave the casual observer breathless. Not only is everything constantly changing, but the pace of change is accelerating as well. Media devices are simultaneously becoming bigger and smaller, portable and more built-in. New homes come complete with special nooks for over- sized TV screens and home entertainment centers, while new cars come with personal TV screens in the back of each seat. The amount of media a person used to consume in a month can be downloaded in minutes and carried in a device the size of a lipstick tube. Today we get movies on cell phones, TVs in cars, and radio through the Internet. Media technologies themselves are morphing and merging, forming an ever-expanding presence throughout our daily environment. Cell phones alone have grown to include video game platforms, e-mail devices, digital cameras and Internet connections”. </li></ul>
