Social media, Parenting, technology, and families

posted in: Research Paper | 0


Choose one topic. Post a main post and a reply to at least one other student. You may respond to both topics with a main post, but you still need a substantive reply to another student in at least one topic. This is what makes our conversation a discussion.

Topic 1: Social media

Do you think the increase in digital spaces (social media platforms, websites, chat areas, discussion boards, online games, workspaces, classes, conferences, hangouts, email and text messages) has brought people closer together and/or encouraged isolation among people? Explain your position.

Respond to a classmate. What can be done to encourage civility, thoughtful discussion, and respect in these online spaces? What could be done to change your thoughts on this?

Topic 2 : Parenting, technology, and families

Has technology helped parents do a better job?
How old is old enough for a cell phone?

Is technology (or the misuse of it) hurting “real” relationships? This involves people making the decisions about their technology.
I have strong feelings about this. Do you? Does anyone know an elementary school kid with a phone?

Have you ever seen a parent hand a baby or toddler (or any other age) child his or her phone to “shut” them up? Have you ever seen a child try to get his or her parents’ attention, but the parent is on Facebook? I see this especially with very young parents and I have seen children get hurt or be hungry as a result.

Does it happen to you? Are your children, parents, spouses, or friends on the phone when you need them? (This requires some negotiating with your own family.)

Respond to one of your classmates. Do you agree with your classmate and their assessment of families and technology?
