We are pleased with our latest review from Library Media Connection...
2013. 18 min. $79.95. Learning ZoneXpress. Grades 7-12.
This excellent video focuses on digital communication. It looks at our everyday online social interactions and asks the question: are we better for the influence they have in our lives, or are they ruling our lives? Socializing via technology is not the same as face-to-face interactions which increase emotional intelligence. Students are asked to consider whether heavy media use is having a negative effect on their life, and advice is given regarding building digital reputations. Attention can be focus on only one thing at a time and constant digital interruptions deter focused attention. Students will relate to the teens in this video, and teachers and parents will like the strategy offered to navigate the new digital world. Closed-captioned.
