Confounding variables may skew the current research in an unpredictable way

Social media and other interactive technologies are evolving too rapidly

Some research shows positive behavioral outcomes associated with responsible usage

Researching the appropriate age to incorporate technology into education
Limitations on Current Research
Potential Policy Reformations (14)
In 2008, China declared internet addiction to be a clinical disorder
Instituted harsh rehabilitation programs
Denver Waldorf School

While education is a state by state issue, there could be a Federal mandate to incorporate technology at the appropriate time (pending research) in a child's educational development

Although there are documented positive impacts on the relationship, interpersonal communication drastically diminished
Increase in technology use correlated with decrease in time spent with family (4)
Increase in peer-to-peer communication leads to further decrease in child-parent communication (13)
Perceived lack of consequences on internet (11)
"Could always go and remove comments later." (pg. 27)
False sense of equality online
Cue-Filtered-Out Theory (5)
"Text based computer-mediated communication lacks physical and social cues, which foster anti-normative and uninhibited behavior." (pg. 15)
Social Presence Theory
Actual presence needed for effective, accurate communication
Online communication can lead to misunderstanding

Our hypothesis was supported by the research in two ways:
1) Constant communication with peers has taken place of household interpersonal relations
2) Children who rely heavily on social media lack empathy and fail to recognize social cues
