Growing up Digital

Quite a bit in the papers over the last few days on the impact of technology on young people.

Thanks to Bob Harrison on Twitter for the lead to a very interesting story in the New York Times on the use of technology by American students and its potential impact on their performance in high school.

Links to a story in the Telegraph which talks about the negative impacts of social networking, although the same paper carried a story about the benefits of blogging last year.

There was also a story today that we aren't happy with just one screen now, a growing number of people browse the internet while watching TV... The iPad is perfect for that of course, and I seem to remember doing other things while watching TV even 30 odd years ago...
