Teachers and professors think the Web is great to a certain point though. Teachers have noticed students are carried away by the Web because they are focusing less on reading. Carr agrees, “…. They don’t necessarily read a page from left to right and from top to bottom. They might instead skip around, scanning for pertinent information of interest… I can’t get my students to read whole books anymore…” (318).
Florence Foster Instructor David English 102 11 January 2011 I have chosen to write about Brent Staples “What Adolescents Miss When We Let Them Grow up in Cyberspace.” Staples argue that “so called online communities isolate adolescents and hinder their social development” (241). Which I believe to be true, but the world as we know it, is becoming very advanced to technology. So that would basically leave adolescents with two decisions, either they have to jump on board with technology, or be left behind. Which would you prefer? Social interactive technologies, such as instant messaging and texting messaging are beginning to redefine the social networks of today’s youth.
Another participant, Lisa, said “I don’t use chat rooms anymore. They are filled with a vast bastion of people looking for absolutely nothing. They are “players”. . Idealism The authors of this article did a lot of qualitative research on why individuals decide to date online.
I was hesitant to get it because I feel that whenever I did set up a social networking account a new networking site was created making the old one obsolete. I did not feel like trying to keep up, but I finally broke down when I had a biology project due and realized that I did not have my partners’ phone numbers; I did know that they both had a Facebook profile.

“Grief in the Age of Facebook” is the article that causes people to think about their lives and eternal things in the age of advanced technologies. According to the author, life is too complicated and people whom we known or see everyday may show us we do not know them at all. People demonstrate their individuality from different aspects and an accident can take life. However, the author wanted to show that memories are those eternal things that help people remember those who have died. The age of Facebook contributes in doing it by means of promoting “memorizing” policy, introduced since 2005.
Kirsten Laman ENGL 1301-61507 Professor Jackson 30 October 2014 Cognitive Effects of the Internet The book The Shallows by Nicholas Carr states that the introduction of the internet into society has had a profound effect on our culture. In other words, the internet has affected the way people think, read, and remember. The rapid access to tons of information has also affected people’s behavior making them less patient and less productive. According to Carr, “The Net commands our attention with far greater insistency than our television, or radio or morning newspaper ever did” (117). In today’s world, the internet has become essential to work, school and entertainment.
As a practitioner I encourage children to explore, observe, solve problems, predict, discuss and consider. I feel that ICT resources can provide tools for using these skills as well as examined in their own right. ICT and everyday technology is often not being recognised enough as people think "computers" for technology. The Early years Sector, as well as parents of young children has long debated the relevance of ICT, with views ranging from those who believe it could result in socio-economic benefits (DFES, 2001) to Sigman’s opinion that ICT is completely inappropriate in early year’s settings, being detrimental to both children’s health and standards of education (O’Hara, 2004
It is steadily rising each year. This paper gave me an insight on what to limit my children to do and not to do. With the help of the Cyberbullying Research Center for this paper, this website offered so much information that I wasn't able to include. It is a great resource to use if ever having to deal with cyberbullying. A good number of it is occurring on networking websites and video websites.
