NYTimes: Growing up Digital

In case you did not see the Sunday New York Times article, here is the link to Growing up Digital, Wired for Distraction and here is video that looks at the attention of teenagers. It is a look at the “massive shift taking place at the intersection of education and technology,” according to writer Matt Ritchell, of NYT. Schools are looking to balance “the thrill of immediate gratification with the rigor and discipline of regular education …”

Ritchell looks at the topic from the science of the brain, and what being online and connected does to our thinking processes. I have to re-read the article again (and maybe again) but it is worth your time.

Peace (in the wired world),
