357 texts

352% is the increase, according to the Nielson Company, in how many text messages were sent between April and June 2008 compared with the same period in 2006.

What’s more, 2008 was the first year in which text messages surpassed calls in terms of frequency

Maybe you don’t send or receive the average 357 text messages per cell phone per month? If not, look to the 13-to-17-year-olds you know. The typical mobile teen subscriber sends/receives and average of __?__ per month.

high tech revolution
High-Tech Revolution

The high tech revolution is redefining how we:

  • Communicate
  • Reach people
  • Influence people
  • Exert political and social exchange
  • Glimpse into the lives of co-workers, neighbors, celebrities, and politicians.
  • Young minds tend to be the most exposed

High-Tech Revolution
  • This revolution has also plunged us into a state of continuous partial attention, described as continually staying busy-always scanning for contact
  • Differs from multi-tasking where we have a purpose for each task and are trying to improve productivity
loss of face to face social discourse
Loss of Face-to-Face Social Discourse
  • Internet is replacing TV as prime source of brain stimulation.
  • We rely on the Internet and digital technology for entertainment, political discussions, and even social reform as we chat with friends and co-workers.
  • As the brain evolves and shifts its focus toward new technological skills, it drifts away from fundamental social skills such as reading facial expressions during conversation or grasping the emotional context of a single gesture
research studies
  • 2007 University of Texas: study of more than 1,000 children found that on a typical day 75% of them watch TV, 32% watch videos/DVDs-total exposure? One hour 20 minutes. For 5-6 year olds, an additional 50 minutes is spent in front of the computer.
  • Kaiser study: young people ages 8 to 18 expose their brains to 8.5 hours of digital and video sensory stimulation each day (most spent passively-watching TV/videos/DVDs, listening to music, video games, and using the computer)

Receiving information quickly and from multiple multimedia sources

Parallel processing and multitasking

Processing pictures, sounds and videos before text.

Interact/network simultaneously with many others

Learning that is relevant, instantly useful and FUN!

Slow and controlled release of information from limited sources

Singular processing and single or limited tasking

Provide text before pictures, sounds and videos.

Students work independently rather than to interact/network

Teach to teach to the curriculum guide and standardized tests

X-Box: "Project Natal" (pronounced nuh-TALL)

Memristor: allows computers to make decisions by understanding past patterns of data it has collected, similar to human brains collecting and understanding a series of events.


The illiterate of the twenty-first century will not be those

who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
