    Dear Angela,
    I was interested in your blog on how technology affects teenagers’ ability to concentrate. After many years as a high school teacher, these are my impressions as well. I also feel that there are possibilities of depression and isolation.
    This area certainly in one to watch.

      Hi Sarah,

      good to meet you.regards the teenagers, what else is problematic is that these are first wave growing up tech-savvy and there are no benchmarks for working out how to deal with the different way they are growing up. About all we can do as educators is try and walk the path with them, so we at least understand where they are coming from. I spent the last few years haranguing my son to consult the library rather than skimming webpages on Google and calling it research. I know he is not the example of all teenagers, but he won’t read anything properly and his style has becoming skim reading.
