Transcript of The Negative Impact of Social Media on Education

Cassidy, Crystal, and Jenny. Oh my god, don't tag me in that! Students who use social networks are also less likely to communicate adequately in person. Social sites aren't physically social, making it harder for kids to communicate and form friendships/relationships in the 'real world'. People create entire relationships online, and often give out far too much information to strangers. This is unsafe. What's on your mind?

Students rely on the Internet as a source for their work and projects, instead of using old-fashioned research techniques. Rosen, Larry. "Social Networking's Good and Bad Impact on Kids."
