Facebook helps high school students like First Amendment
Social media and technology are changing the way we learn and how we access information and resources. A new study out by the Knight Foundation offers some encouraging insights.
Not only was there a large increase in the number of teens who watch videos on YouTube since 2006 -- 71% from 39% in 2006, mobile usage has also skyrocketed.
In 2006, 15% of American teens made mobile calls and today, it's 50%. And the preferred use of mobile? Texting.
Also, only half of all American high school students have taken a class on digital media and digital literacy. However, the majority of high school students who responded use the Internet as a primary research tool for reports and papers.
