Week 7 Discussion 2

  
Please no plagiarism and make sure you are able to access all resource on your own before you bid. One of the references must come from Broderick and Blewitt (2015). I need this completed by 01/11/18 at 6pm. I have attached the transcript from the required video.

Discussion 2: The Impact of Social Media and Technology
Twenty-first century middle school students are intellectually and socially different from any generation that has come before them. The advent of texting, social networking, and social media, and the ease at which they can navigate the Internet has connected these learners to their friends and mass media 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While there is no doubt that social media has inadvertently caused many adolescents to become computer savvy and technologically adept, how might it strengthen or weaken the bonds of adolescent friendships? When parents and adolescents are “friends” online, does it help parents to get a better sense of who their adolescents are, or does it cause bickering and opportunities for further rebellion? How might social media confirm or refute gender stereotypes? How might it serve as a channel for bullying?
For this Discussion, review this week’s media, “Perspectives: The Adolescent World.” Then, consider the overall impacts that social media and technology have on the development and decision making of adolescents.
Post by Day 4 an explanation of the potential impacts social media and technology may have on adolescent development. Include developmental, environmental, and social influences. Explain two ways in which these influences may impact decision making in adolescents. Justify your response with references to this week’s Learning Resources and the current literature. Be specific.
