One point he addresses is this generation focuses too much with online sites and needs to approach things as they did in the past. They need to approach situations by involving themselves physically and not online. Another point Friedman discusses is that the rising generation is putting themselves out there by exploring the world, and helping others. Finally, a third point he addresses is that “Generation Q” needs to be worried on problems from the past generation, “the Greediest Generation” (Friedman 8). If “Generation Q” does not approach and pay any attention to some of the issues from the past generation, people in the youth are going to waste most of their lives “digging out from the deficits” left behind from the previous generation (Friedman 8).
Recently, we have working on the WebQuest “Recycle City”. http://www.epa.gov/recyclecity/ On this WebQuest, there is a lot of reading and graphics which may cause a problem for this student. This student puts much effort into his everyday class work. Even completing experiments in class can be challenging to him. Using the Internet is also a challenge and I need to be aware continuously of these challenges and implement every possible way to include him in these activities.

One problem the internet caused stated in the documentary is, it is very hard for parents and authorities to regulate what kids do on the computer. Since the internet is so easy to access via new technologies, authoritative figures just cannot be present with the kids all the time. Another issue the internet has caused reported by the documentary is by it being so addictive, it has taken time away from studying, school work and activities such as reading. This is a problem because education is almost a must in today’s society. However, the documentary fails to acknowledge how the internet has helped kids by providing ways to find answers and acquire research and knowledge.

Jon Elorriaga Dr. Patrick Muana English 1301 Reading Response 3 25 May 2012 A Critical Reading of Michael Bugeja’s “Facing the Facebook” In “Facing the Facebook” Michael Bugeja discusses the various problems associated with the use of Facebook especially in educational institutions. Many educational institutions invest increasing amounts of money in technology with the idea of enhancing learning through research. That students actually waste their study hours on Facebook and get distracted in class because of Face book is an indication that those institutions are wasting their money. Although many professors have yet to find out about Facebook and about its impact on students, educational institutions as a whole are looking for ways to stop students from accessing it, especially during school hours. Another important downside to Facebook, Bugeja notes, is that it creates an egocentric environment – what he mentions as “egocasting” in his essay.

(Project RED, 2010) The real issue is that some schools/ district restrict students from using technology in school to support their education. It is stated that schools have difficulty keeping up with new technology so they are either behind and have a hard time catching up or they just do not update their technology restricting students from necessary resources. (Education Weekly, 2011) Some forms of learning that students found benefitting them at home as well as in school involving technology is online learning. Some surveys and research has been done that proves that online learning or blending learning elaborates students’ learning and develops their skill. Along with e-learning falls a category called social networking which has increasingly caught the attention of a lot of school board officials.
