Project Based Learning


How does Mass Media

affect teenagers?



Nowadays, many teenagers receive a lot of information from the mass media. However, the mass media often do not broadcast the truth. In order to increase their sales volume, they sometimes report false or incorrect news.

Nowadays the mass media is the most convenient way for people to get information and find out what is happening. The mass media includes newspapers, magazines, the Internet, radio broadcasts, etc. However, the mass media can affect people, especially teenagers, in a negative way.
The mass media sometimes exaggerate the facts to attract more people to read them.

Sometimes, their reports are incorrect and many people are affected.

We can learn more about the society around us.

We can search for information rapidly through the Internet.

We can express our opinions.

Students can make good use of the media to learn.

The advantages of media


The disadvantages of media

  • It is dangerous to believe all the information supplied by the media because they exaggerate or give wrong message from time to time.

2. When teenagers learn about crimes from the media, they may imitate and do the same.

3. Students may neglect their studies if they are only interested in the media e.g. Internet, on–line games.

4. Teenagers may be exposed to pornographic materials.


How can teenagers avoid

being affected by

negative news?

  • They have to be responsible for their decisions, and think about the consequences of their action.
