I just posted an article on how the use of Facebook and other online activities actually decreases performance for children academically. There was a reference in that article on “digital natives” or “homo zappiens.” Is this just a cute reference to a generation that grows up around digital devices? I did a little more investigation (the final decision is still out) and came across this pdf article on the subject. It has a quote from one of my favorite doc on the subject, Bruce Perry. There is some discussion that the digital world is actually reshaping our children’s brain structure. Take a look at tell me what you think?
